Remember The 9-Year-Old Kid Who Kept Getting In Trouble For Doodling In Class?
You all probably remember the incredibly talented 9-year-old Joe from England who kept getting in trouble for drawing in class. We all know how he became recognized all over the world after his art school teacher recognized his talent and he was asked to decorate the dining room of the ‘Number 4’ restaurant in Shrewsbury. We have a wholesome update for you: Joe is still drawing, developing his skills, and he’s just finished his latest project.
Joe (aka The Doodle Boy) finished his latest art project!
He spent 7 hours drawing his awesome doodles on his ‘Bloom’ art school’s wall
Joe’s dad Greg confirmed to Bored Panda that his son’s previous art project at the ‘Number 4’ restaurant is all finished.
“Joe has had an amazing response globally and has been met with real positivity, we really like to thank everybody for this, it is very much appreciated,” Greg said. “We have been incredibly busy, Joe has been inundated with requests for commissions and many licensing opportunities and we have now partnered with an agent/manager for him to help to organize the requests.”

The Doodle Boy is getting more and more commissions every day
“We have always aimed to protect Joe from all of the hype around him as we want Joe to continue to carry out his artwork for the love of it rather than because he’s being asked to,” Joe’s dad explained. “Joe is now at almost 90,000 followers on Instagram* which is amazing and again the support has been overwhelming.”

In a previous interview, Greg told Bored Panda that Joe has ‘always’ loved drawing and “was added to the Gifted register in primary school, aged 4.”
He added: “His identical twin brother Jesse was also added to the register.”
Joe’s artistic talents were recognized when his after-class art school teacher posted his work online. Joe’s doodles were then noticed by staff at the ‘Number 4’ restaurant who commissioned him to draw on their walls. That’s when The Doodle Boy was born.
