Creating Characters & Comics: A Live Draw-A-Long with

the Doodle Boy

12 year-old viral doodler, artist, and creator

About The Doodle Boy

My name is Joe and I'm also known as 'The Doodle Boy'. I am 12 years old and I live in Shrewsbury in the UK and my most favourite thing to do is DOODLE. I have loved art since I was about 4 years old but I started drawing in a doodle/cartoon style when I was about 6 and absolutely love it. When I doodle it makes me feel like the most happy person in the world because I can express myself fully as there is no right or wrong in art. I get my inspiration from my surroundings and that means I can create endless characters and in my head I can see them all come to life - this really makes me really happy and smile. I would encourage EVERYONE to embrace art and creativity and have a go at creating your own characters - it's really fun!!!
