Comedian, director, and writer Harold Ramis passed away on Monday at the age of 69. One of his most well-known roles was Dr. Egon Spengler in the movie Ghostbusters. Ash Vickers of Megacynics drew this beautiful cartoon tribute and said of her inspiration,
When I drew this, the scene popped into my head of Egon actually wanting to know what it was like to go into the trap. I never meant to imply that they’d stick him in the containment unit with the other ghosts ;P. He’s smiling and saying good-bye like ‘no… it’s fine, guys. I’ll be fine!’ More importantly, I was just sad today after finding out that Harold is gone. I just wanted to draw something in tribute to him and this is what popped in to my head.
Rest in peace, Egon. You will be missed.
