You should always support your kid’s talent, even if it doesn’t make any sense to you. You see, gifts are natural, and if you nourish your kid’s skill, it will blossom with time. That’s what 9-year-old Joe Whale’s, aka Doodle Boy, parents did, and supported their boy to keep drawing, even though the kid got into trouble for drawing cartoons in class.
Joe was passionate about drawing cartoons, and soon his parents discovered his hidden skills and sent him to an after-school art class. Many people discovered his secret talent, and a restaurant invited him to decorate their dining room of the ‘Number 4’ in Shrewsbury, England. Now, the lad is recognized as Doodle Boy and has his own website, as well as pages on various social media showcasing his art. Scroll down below to see his work:
