The imposing statue of Roger Contant stands in the square of the New England town he founded. This image has always lurked in a small corner of my mind. I have seen it through childhood visits, high school field trips and then university sketching jaunts. Now, the events of the year 1692 will not only be a topic I have strong interest in but it looks as though they will be my next project. And as my fellow author/illustrator(and friend) Timothy Decker did on his blog with the year 1722…1692 is all you will get.
