Much-decorated Disneyland artist Charles Boyer, recipient of some of the park’s highest and most unique distinctions, died Monday. He was 86. Boyer, who signed on as a portrait sketch artist in 1960, stayed with Disneyland for 39 years. According to a post by D23, the official Disney fan club, he became “Disneyland’s first full-time artist and eventually was elevated to become Disneyland’s master illustrator.” Boyer was made a Disney Legend in 2005, the equivalent of membership in the company’s Hall of Fame, with a window on Main Street in his name.
