Have you heard about Doodle Boy? There’s a 9 year old boy in Shrewsbury, England named Joe, and he loves to doodle. So when complaints about Joe’s doodling began coming from teachers at his school, his parents weren’t upset. They knew that was Joe’s way to express himself. Then they enrolled him in an after-school art class, and that’s when his talent really began to shine! His after-school teacher began sharing it on Instagram, and Joe’s talent caught the attention of a local restaurant called Number Four. The staff thought his style was a perfect fit for the cafe, so they reached out to see if Joe wanted to help decorate their dining room. Joe’s dad Greg said his son leapt at the chance to do it! Joe’s new after-school activity was his first job, spending a couple hours every weekday filling the restaurant’s walls with his art. Now people can commission pieces from Joe through his website! You can see Joe and his work on Facebook or Instagram, where he goes by “Doodle Boy” and you can read more about this here. It’s a great story, and a reminder to parents to encourage your children’s passions!
