Chuck Lechien, bandleader of Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band, one of the founders of the Boston Circus Guild.

In celebration of this year’s HONK! festival, I’ve completed a drawing of the infamous and redoubtable bandleader and circus impressario, the well-loved founder of Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching band… None other than Chuck Lechien! (insert circus font pointy hands)


Special note: The cameo pin on his hat, I’ve rendered to be a portrait of his delightful mate Romy Ruukel!
