Edd Gould, animator, has passed away
Edd Gould, a man behind some animated shorts you may have seen around the internet, has recently lost a years-long battle with cancer. His shorts were enjoyed by many (myself included), and judging by this video, he put a lot of work into it and cared deeply for it. He passed away on March 25, 2012. Here is a tribute video that goes into a little deeper details. He was a cool guy all around, and he will be missed by friends, family, and fans from all over.
I hope his work will be remembered.
There's always the 40%... RIP Edd Gould.
I loved Edd's cartoons. They were a HUGE inspiration to me and always cheered me up, and I have been watching them a lot lately just for that very reason. I never met him in person (and wish I had) but he seemed to be a very genuine and humble fellow. I'm working on an animation in honor of this great man! :) RIP Edd Gould
God bless his soul.
R.I.P. Edd Gould. This song's for you....
WHAT!? First Solem, now Edd, I didn't even know he had cancer...I am so sad right now. His animations were awesome, always enjoyed his work. Gonna go watch em all! RIP Edd
I've been a fan of his stuff for going on three years now... Edd is gone. But through our hearts, he lives on through us. His family, friends, and fans will never forget him. Not until the end of the universe. We all love you, Edd. Goodbye.
NOOOO! His shorts always made me laugh. They said the cancer he had had a 60% chance of survival. Man, this just ruined my day. R.I.P. Edd Gould You will be missed greatly.
First Randy, and now Edd. This is one depressing month.
May he rest in peace.
Rest In Peace Edd Gould. You will be missed.
This is saddening to hear. I'm going to have to give his videos a watch again. R.I.P
He will be missed
I didn't know about Edd and his work until I heard he died. So I went and watched his stuff and I found it pretty entertaining! R.I.P Edd Gould.
His animations saved my life. I was depressed and having suicidal thoughts. My friend linked me to his site and the comedy and talent made me reconsider and see the funniness in the world. I owe my life to him. RIP
It is always sad when someone passes away, especially someone so young and talented as Edd Gould. Rest in Piece Edd :(
Man, First Randy Solem, then the cancelation of Super Mario Bros. Z, and now Edd. This is the worst month ever.
what's going on!? First Randy, now Edd?
May he find peace in the embrace of God
Herd this late last night through his Twitter. As I said earlier today, I was first introduced to his work in my first (& so far Only) year of College in 2007. I was thankfully re-introduced to his work in 2010 during that year's SGC (WTFuture). He was Truly a really creative Animator that not only loved what he did, but more importantly, he cared about his Fans as well. He was an Inspiration to all & he will be Highly missed. Again My Condolances to his Friends & Family.
