Tom of Finland Foundation donated this preliminary sketch that Tom did of Chuck to be with the finished work that is part of the permanent collection of the Leather Archives and Museum.

Chuck Renslow was the founder, in 1979, of International Mr. Leather. When artist Dom “Etienne” Orejudos died, Renslow combined his collection of Etienne’s art with his own personal archives from his business and his life. These were the foundation of the Leather Archives and Museum, which Renslow co-created with Tony DeBlase in 1991. Renslow was the president of the Archives since its conception.
