We’re trying to post original Essex doodles every day as a way to inspire you to explore Essex in new, creative and possibly even whimsical ways on our new site EssexNY.us. It’s a fun challenge and we’re hoping you’ll help us.
[This is] a chance for you to dive into the creative process, to share your perspective on what makes Essex unique. (How do you doodle, Essex?)
Essex Doodle Weekly
Each Friday we plan to feature doodles from the week-ending in case you’ve missed them. This includes a combination of doodles created by members of the community and by George Davis.

So far, we’ve collected most of the community doodles after our stage show at the Depot Theatre in July and during Essex Day. If you have a great time/place for us to set up a doodling booth, please let us know.
