Doodle Marathon: We Built This City

SEEN was sorry to miss a 50-hour non-stop doodle marathon carried out by Mr Doodle on the storefront, inside and even on the merchandise sold by We Built This City, London’s coolest souvenir and gift shop. The event took place over the weekend of 18th-20th August.

Enthralled passers-by gathered to watch the sleep-deprived artist doodle his way on and through WBTC, eating, drinking and doodling the while. He even doodled while going to the loo. The shop was rammed to the gills to cheer him over the finishing line on the Sunday.

Once the event was over, all sheets of doodled-upon paper were sold to benefit The Teapot Trust; a charity that helps young people cope with long-term medical conditions by the use of art therapy.

Mr Doodle follows in the footsteps of creatives Supermundane, Camille Walala, SEEN fave Rugman, The City Works and Alice Bowsher in having his work on the WBTC premises.
