Ep 51: Dave Gee - Doodle Artist
Show Notes

Dave Gee has an instantly-recognizable drawing style that he’s made his own through lots of practice. He’s a doodle artist, creating his trademark maps that combine his unique doodle style with cartoonish illustrations.

He creates maps of cities that are unlike any you may have seen before. To give you an idea, they’re often wall-sized, and much more fun than a typical map! Dave is based in Manchester, UK, and has traveled across Europe, as well as to Hong Kong and the USA to create large scale wall murals.

He’s also the co-founder of OverDrawn - Interactive Art Events, bringing creative arts events to community locations.

On this episode, host Angela de Burger chats with Dave about developing his signature style, his creative approach when starting a new design on a massive white wall, what it’s like seeing his work on products such as Lancashire Tea and rum bottle labels from the Salford Rum Company, and why he's inspired to bring people together through community-based arts events.
