Edd Gould (1988-2012)

It was a year ago today when we found out that Edd Gould, the creator of Eddsworld passed away after fighting cancer for six years. He was a truly remarkable person who didn't let the fame get to him, and he was loved by so many people. I wish I could have met him one day and shake his hand.

One the day he died, Me and my friend John, you may have seen him in some of my cartoons, were devastated. I went in to my closet and pulled out a green sweatshirt similar to the one Edd wore in his cartoons. I hated that sweatshirt. But to express my respect for Edd, I wore it. I wore it all day for a week. (yes I washed it) And John showed his respect for only drinking coca cola that day.

A few days after, I was given an assignment in English class. I forget what it was, but it was something like writing about a tragedy, or event that happened. So I wrote about Edds passing, and how much he meant to me as a role model. it was also the first time I told anybody, or teacher in school that I make stupid cartoons on the internet. My teacher read it, and she was saddened by it, and told me, "I think Edd would be proud that you will still continue to make your animations". I got a 85 or a 90 on it.

I just want to say, rest in piece Edd. You have inspired me to make something big of my life, and you still are inspiring me to make bigger and better cartoons. And thus today, I shall wear a green sweatshirt, and only drink coca cola.

rest in piece Edd Gould. My inspiration. (1988 - 2012)

Rip Eddy. Someday someone should make a Newgrounds Memorial for all valuable animators/artists/writers/generally great people who contributed a lot to this site and the internets.

When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It says that when a great man dies, his actions will forever touch those he left behind, and I can not think of any better line than that.

It was a shock. Most NG users that had died were not as well loved. But Edd, he was a special case.

RIP Edd, may your world keep on spinning for a long time.

We still miss him.

There are so many things I could say about his death. For he inspired me, you, and countless others to animate. What I could fully say about him would surely exceed the 2,000 word limit. So I will leave it at this... Thank You Edd.
