It takes most of us some amount of time before we figure out what it is that we genuinely adore. On the other hand, one boy in England was able to zero down on his interest from an astonishingly tender age and continues astounding people with his aptitude. Joe Whale, who is only 12 years old and goes by the nickname “The Doodle Boy,” has become well-known for his wacky doodle art. His life and interests served as sources of inspiration for the black and white drawings he has spread across various media, including murals, canvases, and even books.
Whale’s website states that “art has played a significant role in my life since I was three and I have been sketching and painting ever since.” I used to create crafts, paintings, and drawings whenever I had the chance, and I still do so today.” Since I was three years old, art has been a significant part of my life. His parents enrolled him in an art class that met after school when he was nine years old after he received a warning from the teacher for doodling in class. Whale’s remarkable abilities rapidly caught the attention of his classmates and teachers. He consequently received the chance to embellish a restaurant’s interior in his hometown.
Since then, word of Whale’s drawing prowess has spread, making him well-known not only in the UK but also beyond. His fame has spread beyond of the UK to the United States. His drawings have an enormous and seemingly limitless cast of characters, many with appealing cartoon-like faces. Whale says, “My favorite characters to draw are food, monsters, and aliens.” Nevertheless, I “very much create doodles from anything as I am inspired by my surroundings and create characters from all the things I see such as my burger and fries characters, flowers, vegetables, cakes -yum, clouds, and so on,” the artist said.
The young illustrator is working on the illustrations for an ongoing book series titled Bad Food, which Eric Luper pens.
You can now purchase the first book in Game of Scones and the sequel, The Good, the Bad, and the Hungry. The Official Doodle Boy Coloring Book, which includes 90 pages of ink drawings, is now available for purchase.

Joe Whale, sometimes known as “The Doodle Boy,” is only 12 years old. Still, he has already garnered widespread attention for his great doodling.
When he was nine years old, his parents advised against painting in front of his friends, so they made the decision to enroll him in an art class.
He was quickly noticed to have artistic talent. As a result, Whale was given the chance to create the interior of the Number 4 restaurant in the English town of Shrewsbury.
Since then, he has worked on a variety-of-projects with renowned organizations like Nike and Disney.
