Illustration Friday: "80's"


So many images to choose from . . . why Grimley? I dunno, I guess he was always just such an island of sanity for me in an otherwise unstable decade . . . I must say.

Ah, the memories of SNL actually being a funny show that I used to look forward to seeing every week. Probably the last time it was hilarious. Great rendering of Mr. Grimley. He was one of my favorites then as well.

Ah! Ed was a great character on SCTV, but not so good on the Billy Crystal Show (starring Martin Short). Oh, sorry, I meant SNL in the '80s.

This is a very decent illustration you have here, I must say. Almost as good as meeting Pat Sajak, I must say.

Does anyone remember John Candy doing a similar character on SCTV? Perhaps Ed's father.

I remember my uncle showing us some SCTV tapes he had brought from Michigan...Ed was a pretty funny guy (anyone else remember the cartoon?)...nice job...
