In a recent interview with Bored Panda, Greg, Joe’s father, said the boy was added to the Gifted registry in his primary school when he was just 4 years old along with his identical twin brother Jesse.

After noticing Joe’s talent, his parents sent him to an after-school drawing class where his skill was noticed by his teachers

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

Joe has been given total creative freedom

Joe spent about 12 hours decorating the restaurant’s walls – and the result turned out amazing!

Greg gave some advice to other parents: “I would advise parents to encourage their children to always follow their passion and dreams — research local workshops or groups within your local community.”

Joe even earned the nickname of The Doodle Boy and has now got his own website

“Joe loves doodling and we’re so proud of everything he’s achieving, the fact that a completely independent business has asked our 9-year old son to do a professional piece of work for them is incredible,” added Greg.
