When you’re bored in class, at work or in life, doodling can be a fun and creative way to occupy your time. Peruse any of my old notebooks and you’d see a multitude of doodles and marginalia throughout. No matter how detailed, they wouldn’t hold a candle to what this kid can do.
An 11-year-old named Dušan Krtolica has created doodles that will drop your jaw. They’re not even doodles so much as they’re artistic sketches.
I’ve tried to draw dinosaurs before, but never anything this awesome (and biologically accurate.)

I could stare at this one for hours.
The amount of detail put into this creepy-crawly sketch is incredible.

This kid inspires me to make my doodles better than I ever imagined.
