Big Day

New month. Gorgeous Spring weather. Big day…

Got my invitation for the vaccine (WooohHoooooo 🥳!), and I’ve been tentatively planning ahead for when we can all gather again (a few months yet I know, but you gotta have a goal, right 😊).

So for the last couple of weeks I’ve been focussing all my efforts on the idea of community spaces to encourage everyone to simply get together and draw, that I shelved when the pandemic hit.

I’m in the process of negotiating for a small amount of ‘new enterprise’ funding to help with setting up a community interest company, and it all now officially has a new name – Doodle Inn.

Last week I designed and built a new website: And today, on the first anniversary of 61 Not Out launching on Patreon, I’ve launched Doodle Inn there too (, with the idea of holding some virtual Doodle Inns while we’re all still isolated, just to get the word out.

It feels really, really good to be ‘doing’ again!

Better days are just around the corner 🤗.
