In his world, everything can be graffitied. "My dream is to cover the moon with graffiti!" In fact, the subconscious that sounds crazy was planted in his childhood.

At the age of 2, Doodle began to fall in love with scribbling, as long as the place where his fingers could touch, he filled in the pattern. The mother was terrified and rushed to the hospital. The doctor diagnosed it as: congenital obsessive-compulsive disorder, and only continuous painting can relieve the pain.

"I have to keep drawing and doodle everything I see."

The treatment has isolated him from the world, and the outside world has long since set off an uproar. 2 million online netizens frantically asked: Where did Mr.Doodle go? ! ! Only then did many people realize that this artist, called a "madman", was quietly healing everyone...
