Daily Essex Doodles
[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?)
We’re working on a series of handbooks (print and digital) using Essex doodles to illustrate local themes like architecture, history, wildlife, etc. The first, The Doodler’s Guide to Essex, NY Architecure is currently being edited and revised, so we’re shifting our focus to local history, heritage and anything else that inspires you to doodle about your community. We hope you’ll submit Essex doodles for us to showcase!
