Sam Cox has balls! Also known as Mr. Doodles covered every square inch of his U.K. 12-room Kent mansion with doodles. The doodle makeover of the $1.54 million house took two years and hundreds of cans of paint to complete. I do not know how this will affect the market value of his neighborhood. I can best be described it as if Keith Haring came to your house for two years and decided to doodle your house. His wife Alena seems very supportive, and why should she not be, Mr. Doodles has contracts with the likes of major brands like MTV Europe (for which he designed an award), Puma, and Wembley Park shopping center.
“So happy and excited to have finally doodled my house,” Cox wrote in an Instagram post on Sunday. “I used 900 liters of white paint, 401 cans of black spray paint (for the outside), 286 bottles of black drawing paint (for the inside) and 2296 pen nibs (I only used four different sized pens but they were refillable and the nibs were replaceable).”
“We now live in a fully doodled world.”
“I’ve not set out with the goal of being represented by a major gallery or doing the exhibitions” at prestigious museums, Cox told Artnet News last year. “Instead, my goals have been to doodle over big spaces like tunnels, buildings, and eventually hopefully whole towns!”
If he ever gets divorced it will be toodles to doodles
