Sam Cox aka The Doodle Man took time out of his busy schedule to speak to Cass Art (https://www.cassart.co.uk) about his passion for drawing, his OCD (obsessive compulsive drawing) and his recent takeover of the Art Space in Cass Art Glasgow, June 2015. The Doodle Man will and can draw anywhere, originally coming from the creative city of Bristol with a growing portfolio of prestige clients; BBC, Adidas, Converse, JD Sports, Sky and Sony to name a few.
Sam's work covers everything from sketchbooks, to walls, furniture to any other surfaces capable of doodling on. A fluid drawing technique covers a wide range of characters, patterns, shapes and styles to create a complex puzzle of art. He adopts a cartoon, graffiti comic book style that fusions comical scenes with expert drawing and illustration skills, Sam's mission statement is to create "a million drawings" and achieve “world domination through drawing”.
Recently Sam exhibited at Free Range in London, where a bedroom installation piece, that impressed everyone and also caught the eye of founder Mark Cass. He was then invited to do a similar takeover at Cass Art Glasgow and an interactive Student Day work at the Islington Flagship. To create his work Sam uses Posca pens due to their versatile nature (thick and thin nib) and high quality to create his artwork.
Sam is a regular customer at the Cass Art shops where he speaks highly about the store, layout, range and affordable prices.
We would like to extend a big thank you to Sam for being part of our "pick up a pen and draw" video created to inspire everyone during "Doodle Day" to get involved and start creating their own Doodle.
