Emperor Norton I by WonderDookie Emperor Norton I by WonderDookie
His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I. Self-Proclaimed Emperor of These United States, and Protector of Mexico.

If you don't know who this guy is, you should check out this wiki page. He's seriously one of my new heroes. [link]

This was meant to be just a quick sketch but the project got out of hand a bit. It's made of painted watercolor paper pasted together.

haha. Agreed! It's a shame that he never produced an heir.

haha. Yeah. When I first found out about him I was thinking to myself, "HOW have I not heard of this guy before!?!" Such a strange character. And I had read about a zillion references about him at different points too, but had never tied them together until then.

Thanks!

You're welcome. I'm surprised I had never heard of him, either, until recently. Thanks to a very boring day at work, and a dump of wikipedia on my phone, now I know about Emperor Norton I, and more than anyone really needs to know about naval mines. ;)

Oh, I love this silly guy. I want to do a comic strip biography of him at some point.
