Being a Ex-Cancer Survival, and having experience the pain and suffering one has to go through cancer treatment.

I've my full respect to Edd's sheer amount of willpower and drive with passion to work on his animation.

it is sad that out there, there are still haters ready to exploit everyone's feeling by trolling grievers or are just downright haters to edd's animation and work behind the safety of their keyboards....

but in my heart and to anyone out there who has gone through cancer treatment and have felt the experience of geting poisions pump into your body every month, Edd has fought through such odds and still persist in doing what he love doing most.

he is the symbol of sheer willpower and drive of passion to his craft.

Edd personally added me on his msn contact back when we started out flash animation. still remembered the last few msn convos was exchanging our cancer patient stories and experiences together and wishing each other full recovery.

edd was more than just an extraordinary flash animator, he is the symbol of sheer determination and will power towards his craft and passion...

Well I'm putting away my work, grabbing a beer and gonna start watching all the cartoons he made again.
( Might skip too Eddsworld Zombie attack cause I don't remember his bendee series and seeing the preview art it might not be a good idea remembering him for that. )

Edd was someone that the newbies could inspire to and the accomplished admire. A great animator, storyteller and comedian.

Newgrounds has lost a phenomenal creator. It saddens me greatly that I will no longer see his work.

Edd amazed me with his animations ever since I signed up years ago, I was always so hyped to see something new from him. Will always have those greats memories, will miss you Edd.

I never knew edd but I hate to see this stuff happen. People dedicated to their ambitions getting sucked away decades before others who have never even considered using one percent of their potential.

fucking cancer.

I heard about this last night.. Honestly, I can't think to say anything but that this is extremely depressing news.

Rest in Peace, Edd.

His animations were one of the few videos that made me enjoy flash animations. It really sucks to lose a great person at such young age. RIP Edd

I feared years ago that one day something like this would happen to the NG community, and here it is.

I have never seen any of Edd's movies up until recently, but it is clear he was clearly an inspiring artist to this community, and I hate it when people with creative and artistic brains die, for it is as if a piece of the world itself dies. Cancer is a terrible disease, and it is not anything that any one person deserves. But we can take great comfort in knowing that he doesn't have to suffer any longer.

I do know without a fact his legend will live on because of us. Artists like Da Vinci and Picaso are legends to this day because we are inspired by them, and I have no doubt that Edd will be looked at as something similar, for animators like Edd Gould are what inspired me to start doing my own flash creations over a decade ago.

A standing ovation to our universe for creating such a fabulously talented, inspiring, and brave man.

R.I.P.

Son of a bitch! I've been a fan of Edd's since around the time he first showed up on here. I know it's weird, but I'm more pissed than I am heartbroken.

If I find out that Chris of Greasy Moose ever dies... I might just go on a rampage.

RIP Edd. One of the first animators I came across on the site and by far one of the best I've seen to this day. Awra best to the Gould family.

I can't believe he died...
He was always one of my favourite animators, incredibly talented and definitely a big inspiration for me. He was way too young to die...
Newgrounds will never be the same without him. RIP Edd.

Can't believe this, really makes you realize death can happen at any time :( So young, and so much more stuff to make. This and Randy dying is giving me severe anxiety lately, any time it can all be snatched away.. and all the work and effort, just stopped in it's tracks. Thankfully we have NG and the internet to remember him.

Something else that is great, is that he made stuff so now when people he knew look back, they can see a piece of him in his work. There's a record, of how he thought and what he thought was funny,a record of his hours of toiling away alone, working on his flashes. I imagine a lot of people pass away and all anyone has left are photos... but since he created something, he lives on in his work, everyone here does.

Edd was always one of my favorite animators when I first saw his stuff in 2010. 2010 was a depressing year for me since I hated moving to my still crappy apartment. My brother introduced me to Edd's videos in the summer of 2010, and I've still been a big fan of him. When I learned in winter of 2010, when Ed, had luekemia, I was really sad. His stuff has always brighten up my day, making me feel good, all the time. I will always remember him, as a guy I looked up to.

Man this is such a shame. I was really hoping to meet him one day at a London meet. They don't seem so appealing anymore.

Genuinely feel very saddened by this, I never even knew he was ill, I thought it was a joke at first.

Here's hoping Eddsworld keeps going on strong.

Well, I first watched the sad news on YouTube and wasn't expecting Newgrounds to reply. I was wrong. But Edd wouldn't want you to just sit and cry. He would want people to continue enjoying his work, beacuse that's what he animated for. He will be missed. </3

This is sad, considering the fact that his animations were keeping me entertained and happy for the past 3-4 years.
He will be missed. One of the best animators.
