In the 1630s the Saybrook Colony was named in honor of Lords Saye and Brooke, prominent Parliamentarians and holders of the colony's land grants. Artist Bill Dougal commemorated them in a drawing, imaginatively showing Lord Brooke drawing a caricature of Lord Saye. The premise is apropos for Bill, since he is a professional caricaturist found at DougalArt.com. He brought prints of the picture to the Arts & Crafts Festival in Old Saybrook this summer, and was awarded first prize in the graphics category.
