Transcript:

UK artist Jon Burgerman turns everyday doodles into spectacular works of art. His doodles aren’t limited to the page. They’re seen in galleries, parking lots, skate parks, and even the White House.

“I often have no idea what I’m going to create. I allow the pen to glide on the surface of the wall. It creates a puzzle I can work with and against. Characters emerge and a narrative is formed.
