When I was a kid, The Real Ghostbusters was one of my favorite shows, and firmly instituted (along with Bill Nye: The Science Guy and a few others) my love of science. Egon was, of course, my favorite. He was a snarky genius, he wore glasses, and he was, like it or not, the cutest of the four ("I think they're more interested in my epididymis.") Finally seeing the first film a few years ago really brought back all that fondness I had for the franchise.

I was gutted when Harold Ramis died a week or so ago, but like many others online, I was motivated to draw tribute fanart in response:

Art of The Rose: I Collect Molds, Spores, & Fungus.

I went with a 1980's theme for the text. This one is from Oingo Boingo (Danny Elfman's) "Weird Science".

And this one is from Robert Palmer, of course. I always had a soft spot for Janine Melnitz's unrequited (?) crush on Egon.

Finally, three of my favorite Ghostbusters-referencing characters from other media, all dressed up as Ghostbusters themselves. From right, it's Luigi, John Egbert (from Homestuck), and the Medic from Team Fortress 2.
