Remember The 9-Year-Old Kid Who Kept Getting In Trouble For Doodling In Class? He Just Finished His Work For Another Client

You all probably remember the incredibly talented 9-year-old Joe (aka The Doodle Boy) from England who kept getting in trouble for drawing in class. We all know how he became recognized all over the world after his art school teacher recognized his talent and he was asked to decorate the dining room of the ‘Number 4’ restaurant in Shrewsbury.

Well, we have a wholesome update for you: We have a wholesome update for you: Joe is still drawing, developing his skills, and he’s just finished his latest project on his art school’s wall! It looks absolutely fantastic!

Bored Panda spoke to Joe’s father Greg Whale to get an update about his son’s latest art project. According to Greg, it took Joe around 7 hours to finish his doodles and the drawings will stay at ‘Bloom’ because they’re drawn on the wall.

Joe’s dad Greg confirmed to Bored Panda that his son’s previous art project at the ‘Number 4’ restaurant is all finished.

“Joe has had an amazing response globally and has been met with real positivity, we really like to thank everybody for this, it is very much appreciated,” Greg said. “We have been incredibly busy, Joe has been inundated with requests for commissions and many licensing opportunities and we have now partnered with an agent/manager for him to help to organize the requests.”

“We have always aimed to protect Joe from all of the hype around him as we want Joe to continue to carry out his artwork for the love of it rather than because he’s being asked to,” Joe’s dad explained. “Joe is now at almost 90,000 followers on Instagram which is amazing and again the support has been overwhelming.”

In a previous interview, Greg told Bored Panda that Joe has ‘always’ loved drawing and “was added to the Gifted register in primary school, aged 4.”

He added: “His identical twin brother Jesse was also added to the register.”

Joe’s artistic talents were recognized when his after-class art school teacher posted his work online. Joe’s doodles were then noticed by staff at the ‘Number 4’ restaurant who commissioned him to draw on their walls. That’s when The Doodle Boy was born.

11 Designer and Client Differences That Explain Why They Never Understand Each Other

While they should be on the same team in order to attract the audiences, the client and the designer often have completely different expectations when it comes to the product in the making.

While one of them wants bigger, bolder, and brighter, the other one is fascinated with minimalistic forms, pastel colors and subtle designs. While one of them believes photoshop is magic, the other one knows it’s draining work that requires hours of focus. And, of course, the differences don’t end there. To illustrate the designers’ point of view on this common occurrence ‘Trust Me, I’m A “Designer”‘ used an amusing animation that a lot of creators can relate to.

Scroll down to see the full list of the witty differences.

Dr. Carol Bentel Tackles the Issue of Disposable Design at Design Talks 2019

The restaurant business—especially in New York City—can be a fickle one: One day you’re the darling of the food critics and earning culinary awards left and right and only a few years later you’re out of business or sold to a new investor. But what if you’re the firm that designed the restaurant and garnered accolades for the space? What happens to the materials that were so carefully selected to create an ambience that complements the dining experience?

That was the topic tackled by Dr. Carol Bentel, partner in New York-based Bentel & Bentel Architects and chair of BFA Interior Design Department at the School of Visual Arts, who as a speaker at Design Talks 2019—a free series of lectures hosted by Design Pavilion NYC  as part of NYCxDESIGN events—offered up some sobering statistics: On average, restaurant design endures just seven years.

Bentel also showed a video of what prompted her to study the subject. It was of a 2017 “graffiti party” hosted by the new owner and chef of Eleven Madison Park, Will Guidara and Daniel Humm, as they covered the walls with scrawls of paint before a gut renovation began on the space that Bentel & Bentel had originally designed for restaurateur Danny Meyer in 1998.

The architect looked at the other restaurant projects the firm had designed—58 in total—and learned that just 41 still exist, which meant that almost one-third were gone. This, she noted, begged the question: “What happens to all those materials?”

She then detailed how her firm altered designs requested by clients to maintain certain quality materials—walnut flooring in the Rouge Tomate restaurant at 10 East 60th Street (since closed) and marble slabs and monumental bronze columns in the lobby of the Grand Hyatt New York (now slated to be demolished in 2020 for a new hi-rise)—their demises further driving home the notion of modern design’s impermanence.

But Bentel also offered ideas for creative re-use. These included dismantling techniques that don’t destroy materials; reusable surfaces for walls, floors, and ceilings; panelized systems; enduring materials that defy the need to toss; reexamination of prefab ideas; and building with obsolescence in mind.

She also put out a call to the design industry to “cherish the endurance of good design,” create prizes for “saving the existing,” and develop something akin to City Harvest, the program started in 1982 that collects unused food at restaurants (now 61 million pounds annually) to distribute to New Yorkers struggling to put food on their tables.

Bentel closed by noting that although the disposable design trend won’t end, “maybe we can slow the destructiveness and wastefulness down” by doing three things: resisting fads, embracing authenticity, and striving for timelessness.
