Blues Bros Sketch by TallToonist Blues Bros Sketch by TallToonist
Just a quick sketch (doodle) I did last night.  Not real happy with the way Elwood came out but decided to share it anyway.  I used to draw these guys all the time when I had a Blues Bros comic strip many years ago... Kind of rusty now, but maybe I'll start drawing them again and get better?  There was actually a Blues Bro Animated cartoon that was made in '97 with the voices of Jim Belushi & Peter Aykroyd as Jake & Elwwod but it never aired on tv for some reason..?? 
John Belushi was sort of a hero of mine when I was a little kid.  He never let anyone or anything stand in his way.  The first time I watched "Animal House" I laughed so hard it made me forget my troubles for a while... It was the first college comedy and the first to deal with the 'slobs vs the snobs', and Belushi was brilliant.  People either don't remember or are too young to know, but Belushi was a BIG deal when he was alive.  He was super popular after "Animal House" and everyone wanted a piece of him... After Belushi died his reputation took a hit when that stupid book, "Wired" by Bob (jerk) Woodward came out...  All of Belushi's family & friends have condemed that book as a bunch of crap... Woodward has a way of manipulating the facts, stretching the truth & just plain lying... It's so easy to cut someone down when they're dead and not able to defend themselves...

My Dad's friends were in the movie and my Dad was going to participate, but he unfortunately did not have the time.

Should get to watching it again.

That's cool... Is your Dad from Chicago??  My whole family is originally from Chicago (except for me).  My Uncle remembers when they were filming the movie and said Belushi & Aykroyd took over the whole town :)

My whole family is from around the area.

I'm actually the only one out of six kids who was born in Indiana...
And we're technically 45 minutes from Chicago, so we really haven't left it, especially since I'm commuting there two days a week.

Me too  :D  Belushi and Aykroyd were as close as brothers off the screen and best friends... I heard Aykroyd say in an interview once that the first time he met Belushi back in 1973 (before SNL) it was "love at first sight".   Aykroyd was never the same after Belushi died :(
- I heard they are making a John Belushi biopic, with Emile Hirsch staring as Belushi... Don't know who's playing Aykroyd.  Filming is supposed to start in the spring...  Hope the biopic does Belushi justice and doesn't suck like a lot of biopics do.
