He also thanked all the people who helped to capture his doodle house which he dreamt of creating since he was a teenager. "I'd like to thank my Mum and Dad because ever since they let me draw over my bedroom walls when I was a kid I have wanted to live in a property completely covered in characters of my own. creation. A DoodleLand filled with happy creatures that bring me joy when I see them. For me, that's what I create art for, to make myself happy and to hopefully make others happy along the way," he further added.
