Even though he was scolded in class, a 9-year-old kid gets a job decorating a restaurant with his doodles.

Instead of putting a stop to Joe’s scribbling, his parents decided to encourage his creativity by enrolling him in an after-school art class. Joe Whale’s parents did just that when he was 9 years old, encouraging him to keep drawing despite getting in trouble at school for doodling.

Joe was asked to decorate the dining room at the restaurant ‘ Number 4 ‘ in Shrewsbury, England, and he is now known as The Doodle Boy, with his own blog and social media pages showcasing his incredible artwork. Bored Panda’s conversation with Joe’s father Gregory can be found by scrolling down!

Joe’s father, Greg, was interviewed by Bored Panda about his son’s artistic abilities. Greg claims that his son has always enjoyed drawing and was “added to the Gifted register in primary school at the age of four.”

“His identical twin brother Jesse was also added to the register,” he continued.

Greg also revealed how long it took Joe to complete his sketches on the dining room walls.

“Joe worked on the wall for about 12 hours.”

Greg also had some advice for parents who want to help their children develop their talents: “I would advise parents to always encourage their children to follow their passion and dreams — research local workshops or groups within your local community.”

Any artist would love the creative freedom that Joe’s been offered.

Joe’s teacher uploaded a photo of his work to Instagram. His artwork drew the attention of the restaurant ‘Number 4,’ which invited him to come over and decorate their walls with his doodles. His father now takes him to a restaurant where he can draw his heart out.

Joe’s father, Greg, told the media, “They wanted to get Joe into their restaurant to complete an art piece on their wall, and it was in their main dining area, so we were over the moon.” “I asked Joe, and he, of course, jumped at the chance to do it, so we’ve been going there after school, where he’ll put his creativity on their wall for a couple of hours each night.”
