The majority of us probably recall making doodles in our school notebooks during tedious lessons. And 9-year-old Joe Whale doodled so much in class that he even received punishment for it! But when the boy’s parents discovered how much he enjoyed drawing, they enrolled him in an after-school art program, where the instructors immediately recognized Joe’s skill. Furthermore, a neighborhood restaurant called Number 4 even encouraged the youngster to decorate their dining room after being astonished by his talent!

Greg previously said, “We were over the moon when they wanted to bring Joe into their restaurant to finish an art piece on their wall, and it was in their main eating area. I asked Joe to do it, and he naturally jumped at the prospect. As a result, we have been coming there after school so that he can display his creativity there for a few hours each evening.
Joe has been granted complete artistic freedom.
The restaurant’s walls were beautifully decorated by Joe over the course of around 12 hours.
