I kinda felt the need to- yknow? Just to get it out of my system.
On Sunday the 25th of March 2012, Edd Gould passed away after a six year long battle with cancer. He will be greatly missed.
I don’t know guys, I feel like that maybe there’s more I want to do? I’ve always- ALWAYS been really apathetic when it comes to things like cancer and the lose of life in general, so I can say that this hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m still a little shaken as I type this out and say that I am and will always a huge fan of Edd Gould, his animations were the first I really experience from an ‘amateur’ standpoint and Edd was really the first animator I looked up to. His style really influenced me as I watch him perfect his own techniques and I still even end up drawing up edd styled little doodles once in awhile… I just feel like I want to do more for all the ways this guy really gave me a good laugh when I needed it and really influenced me as a cartoonist, in a field that I hope one day excel in…
What I’m saying is that, on every year on the 25th of March, I think it would be nice if people could draw a scene or a character from the EddsWorld series? Like an annual EddGould day where we can just get together as a community of fans and remember this guy, and celebrate animation/animators in general? Maybe even get a group of artists together and sell some prints to give to cancer research?…..
I know I’m going to do this either way- I just figured it’s a venture that my peers might want to join in on.
Reblog if you’re in favor of this, or don’t- either way just show your support for this man.
March 25th, Edd Gould.
Gone but not forgotten.
