For Joe Whale it is doodling. But please don’t copy him and draw on your bedroom wall! 🙂

Joe is twelve years old and is known as the Doodle Boy:

“I have loved art since I was 4 years old. 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 happiest person in the world.”

“My inspiration comes from my surroundings. I can create endless characters and see them come to life. This makes me really happy and I smile as I draw. I would encourage EVERYONE to embrace art and have a go at creating your own characters – it’s really fun!!! And there is one rule I always follow so I am completely free to express myself:

‘There is no right or wrong in Art, just interpretation.’

There are free downloads on Joe’s website for you to copy or colour in:

And ‘Draw with Rob‘ on YouTube gives loads of ideas to create fun figures: a Gregosaurus, a sausage dog, an alien, a racing car and Sonic the hedgehog……

The E.A.R.T.H Gang wants everyone to be CREATIVE. Planet Earth needs creative young people to find solutions to climate change. Whether it is growing plants, recycling materials, writing articles, drawing posters or creating raps with a message.  And when you find what you love to do, you will find your HAPPY place like Joe.
