So news just got out that Edd,
lost his fight against cancer and passed away.
being experience cancer before and surviving it. it greatly saddens me that Edd lost the battle against cancer.
Edd contacted me waay back when I was still new at animation and stuff and we usually exchange convos once in a blue moon and had a friendly chat...
My last msn convo I had with him was a patient to patient talk with him sharing our experience with cancer and understanding each other's experience with cancer.
I believe it was me telling edd how I've finished my own chemotherapy treatment and wishing him the best in recovery from his cancer..
I always thought he was in good hands and he was doing pretty good with his treatment.
Edd shall be missed as hes probably the very few animators that are still making a statement and popularity back from the 2000 era to keep animating and still making it big
in this new age where many superior new generation indy animators starting to take over the old generation...
where most "famous animators" back in 2000 drop down the popularity radar and disappear mysteriously, Edd continues to work on his animations and draw in a huge
supporting fanbase yet going through cancer treatment.
I'm amaze at his sheer determination and willpower to come up with animation after animation yet despite going through the experience and pain of cancer treatment which
I myself have experience first hand and I couldnt even bare the routine for 8months of it.
Edd you have my sheer respect. it was regretful for me not being able to have the opportunity to visit you back when I was in london...
Rest in peace Edd.
