Joe Whale, 13, also known as ‘Doodle Boy’ on social media, was frequently chastised in school for doodling, but it appears he’s been able to turn his pen obsession into a full-time profession.

Joe garnered popularity for his illustrations after getting scolded regularly in class for his free-hand artwork. He now has over 166k followers on Instagram.

In an unusual turn of events, Joe, who is from Shrewsbury, went on to work with one of the world’s largest sportswear businesses.

Loveblood Creative, his agency, confirmed the collaboration in a written statement made last year. “We are thrilled to announce that Joe has joined the Nike family,” it said. “It really is a unique relationship that puts Joe’s talent and love of sport together to inspire others to have fun and do what they love.” 

Gregory Whale, Joe’s father, told CNN at the time, “Joe is really excited to join the Nike family; he absolutely loves the brand.” “It is a dream come true for him, as he loves both sport and creativity, and partnering with Nike will give him the opportunity to embrace both.”

Joe explains on the official Doodle Boy website, “I have been drawing and painting since the age of three, and art has always been a huge part of my life – I would draw, paint, and do crafts at every opportunity, and that hasn’t changed to this day.” 

In addition, he stated that his “favourite characters to draw are food, monsters, and aliens.” He did say, “I pretty much create doodles from anything as I get inspired by my surroundings and create characters from all of the things I see, such as my burger and fries characters, flowers, vegetables, cakes, yum, clouds, etc.” 

And, according to Joe, there is only ‘one rule’ he strictly adheres to when it comes to his doodles. “There is no right or wrong in art, just interpretation,” he stated, “and this means when I create, I am completely free to express.” Who knows what the future holds for the little prodigy?
