What the heck is a 'Doodleworx' anyway?
Doodleworx is a word to describe my doodle works of art! My name is Kevin Jones and I'm a cartoonist and writer from Beaumont, Alberta, Canada. I create original, cartoon illustrations and write humorous stories about them. Imagination is everything to me.
I have always felt like a bit of an outsider, so I lived in my own world of imagination as a child. I think that I get my twisted sense of humor from having lived in eight cities and three provinces in this vast land that we call Canada. As the son of a former R.C.M.P. (Royal Canadian Mounted Police), we were transferred to a different town every three years or so. Now I am married to a busy, executive, business woman who continued the gypsy-like trend.
Luckily for me, wherever I went, I always brought my vibrant imagination with me, as it was easily transplanted (even if I wasn't!). It started as a child, where I created my own pop-up books, wrote whimsical stories, had elaborate battles with my Gi-Joe's and Transformers, and constantly doodled cartoons. Creativity has always been my life's blood, and I want to bring the ideas in my imagination to life.
I now work in digital with the Procreate app on the ipad Pro, but I still find the time to do Inktober (created by Jake Parker), which is an ink drawing every day for the month of October (I even write a short story for each illustration). Every week I create original art and post a story about it on Instagram and Facebook. My current project is illustrating my first children's book 'The New Gnu,' which I have already written. When I am not creating art, or writing about it, I am the chauffeur, manager, head chef and cheerleader to our two, basketball-playing teenage sons.
