Daily Essex Doodles
We’re working on a series of handbooks (print and digital) using Essex doodles to illustrate local themes like architecture, history, adventures, 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’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. 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?)
We hope you’ll submit Essex doodles for us to showcase on the blog!
