Shame. Edd's "Zombeh Nation" was one of the first Newgrounds vids i watched. When i first saw it years ago it amazed me how well it looked, and how entertaining it was. I used to watch and re-watch it when i was feeling "out of it". Heck, Edd was one of the many inspiring artists (a title i believe he's earned) that inspired me.... Never did do anything though... Real shame that he's gone though....
RIP Edd, died too young.
Good lord! First Randy, one of my original inspirations to make sprite animations and now Edd?
What the Hell is going on? They're dropping like flies. *sigh* These are end times, man. =_=
I pray to god no one else dies before their time.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Rest in peace Edd, you will not be forgotten.

It's just not fair ya know, when death comes into your life out of nowhere and just hits you by the wayside. I feel for his family and friends, I've lost a loved one too and it sucks...it seriously does. It shouldn't ever happen but it does and its the worse possible thing that could ever happen to anybody.
Three deaths in such a short period of time...it is, indeed, very tragic - and it makes us all aware of our own mortality. We all grieve now at the loss of three young artists, who in their brief life on this rock we call home made it a more bearable place with their humor and talent. My heart goes out to their families and friends, for they have lost a brother, or an uncle, or a son - it's just not right for a parent to bury their children.
They all served as inspiration to us while they lived, and now, the best way we can show our appreciation to them is to continue on with that inspiration. All of us who have been "thinking about" a flash or doing something creative - now it's time to sit down and do it already. And when you do finish it, no matter what is, as long as it's your own honest work that isn't spam for the sake of spam, dedicate it to Edd, Randy and Lucas. Let their light live on in our work and our dreams.
Let's not die with them..let's live for them!
Rest in peace, gentlemen. You will be missed very much by a lot of people for a long time.
Please... no more dead flash animators.
I was upset when I heard of Randy's passing and even more upset at this news. I wish everyone would live well and take care of one another. This is truly one of the saddest moments in Newgrounds history.
We'll all miss you very much, Randy and Edd.
Sad to hear this news :( Edd really was talented. Hell of a body of work he made in such a short amount of time.
I don't want to believe any of this. Unfortunately, I do.
R.I.P., Edd. You were incredible. :'(
Just a starving artist. Nothing new.
R.I.P. Edd, You'll be missed....
(Oh fuck, one of my 2 favourites animator died, I hope Egoraptor's okay... o_o)
I actually luckily got the chance to talk to Edd once at a NG London meet last summer while in the back garden of the main karaoke pub NG tried to go to every year (sorry I don't remember the name of it, although those who know of the meets will know what I'm on about). Speaking to him, he was incredibly humble, casually reserved and down to earth, to the point that I had no idea who he was before he told me. I was actually surprised when I told him who I was on the forums that he had heard my name somewhere. He was definitely a great animator and it's a shame for him to pass on.
This too will pass.
What?! I had no idea he was ill at all. Oh my god. I really love his work and watched all of his new stuff when it came out.
Jesus. Wow. I'm absolutely shocked. His fans, the internet, and the animation/flash field itself truly has lost a great, respected, and talented artist. I'm going to miss him and remember him. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
Don't be afraid of failure.
Edd will be missed and never forgotten. He was one great creator. I saw creator because he brought his characters to us. Shared his ideas with us. I wish his family the best. We all know he is in a better place now. I take my hat of in respect of him.
Newgrounds is my second home
Rest easy Edd

A sad day for us all :(
I watched most if not all of Edd's animations and I could see that he loved what he was doing.
It really sucks to see him go at such a young age.
Never would there be such an awesome animator like Edd! Do your bests guys, Edd is with you in spirit! My best regards from Peru!
I never did think he'd pass. We should all dedicate a day for him here on Newgrounds, when we'll all chug down a can of cola to honor the good 'ole edd. Rest in peace Edd.
So the man walks in the bar and asks for a burger...and the waiter said "This is a French Restoraunt Sir".
So the man said: "Then gimme french fries instead!" lol
