You asked for it, you got it. No, it's not f**king waffles.

Even before i animated, i always had a habit of drawing friends into comics. In secondary school i would draw them all the time, if just to get a quick laugh or to insult another. Originally my group of friends in school were he cast of what i called 'Edd's World', most likely inspired by Wayne's World. Eventually i started using the internet more often and started using Neopets with Matt and others, which lead to me making a Guild and then a Guild website.. and that Guild was called 'Edd's Kill-a-thon'... yeah. A few weeks later after some angry threats, the admins removed my guild for having too violent of a title. So i made a new one and called it 'Edd's World' with a lame little Geocities webpage linking to cool stuff and funny pictures. Soon i started using an animated gif maker to make very bad anmated gif stories, mainly about stickmen dying and farts and what not. When i finally found a place to submit them (www.sfdt.com) i discovered they were no longer taking animated gif entries and were only accepting flash entires. So i click on one entry on the side and thought i'd see what these animations were like, and that entry was Agent Smiley (www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…) and basically i was like ohygodwydontihavethisprogram, and so i got it. On the 7th of November 2002. Needless to say i started using it, for the first few years i made primarily stick figure animations. Around 2004 i started making less stick movies and more character based things, and by the end i made the first Eddsworld 'crew' animation, the Eddsworld Xmas Special 2004 (www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…) Which had... mixed success. It wasn't until The Dudette Next Door (www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…) that the Newgrounds audience took any notice (wonder why) and fans started appearing and things started snowballing from there, really.

I first met Matt at a Sports day event. Me and my friend were sat next to him having to watch the tedious sporting events, and suddenly this ginger kid starts talking constantly to me and my friend. My first impression was that he was a bit of a prick so i was keeping my distance, but he soon engaged us in tic-tac-toe kind of games on paper, more with my friend than i. Then a few days later suddenly it's announced a pupil would be moving to our class and that me and my friend should know him, he said his name and i had no idea who he was talking about but i was hoping it wasn't- and in he walked. But none the less, he grew on me eventually (less so on others) and when my initial friend left the school it was just me and Matt basically! (Don't get me wrong, there were other friends but this is about Matt) He intially didn't want to be in my earlier stick animations because he claimed i kept killing him off, hence why he does not have a proper role in the earlier 'eddisodes' instead appearing as a cameo. But when i later asked if he wanted to appear and then die very early in Eddsworld Zombeh Attack, he was all up for it. Go figure.

I then met Tom online actually, shortly after i started making stick animations, he was actually a fan who had added me on a messaging service back when i did stick animations because he liked the animations i had posted on StickSuicide.com (now Explosm.net [www.explosm.net]) and he basically sat in my contact list for a long time, when Edd Again came out he started talking to me more, even sending fan art and his work (which was clearly a take on the style used in Edd Again) which he shortly fixed by adding a monobrow on the face (hence Tom's initial appearance). Then we carried on speaking and i didn't include Tom in any of my animations until late 2004 when i initiated him 'into the crew'. He was technically the first member too!

I then met Tord in a similar way to meeting Tom, only with Newgrounds. He liked one of my animations so we got talking and eventually i initiated him into the crew along with Tom. Originally he was to provide comics for the website, but was soon adapted into the crew in time for the Eddsworld Xmas Special 2004. Shortly after The Dudette Next Door, i had major computer problems and was using Internet cafes and all sorts to stay in contact, leaving Tom and Tord to discuss alone. Thus leading to both parties finding they didn't like each other too much, haha. But once i returned, things continued as usual! Tord 'left' right after Moving Targets was completed over three years ago, simply because he wished to pursue his own ambitions separately from the group.

So technically i'm the only thing linking these guys together!

And if you read all of that, i'm impressed.

It's been five years since I've wanted to say this. Guess noes as good a time as ever. even if no one else reads this I just kinda need to say it in hopes it'll make me feel better.

i found this series back in march 2012. It was the week of my senior prom and my bro dragged me into his room and showed me two other random animations before finally showing me hammer and fail. Admittedly I didn't think much of it at first but there was something there that kept me coming back to it.
for the next few days I'd periodically come back to the series and while not being huge into it I found some sort of enjoyment in it. Fast forward to THAT day and no one knew what had happened that day or that it was even gonna happen. I was laying in bed with my laptop and had decided to watch the video fanservice. At first everything seemed normal and I even managed to get a good laugh out of it....that was till I saw the end. I'll be honest I was horrified, and even questioned my brother about why he never told me though as it turned out he didn't really know himself either. As soon as he left and panic set it I decided to take a look at when he last posted something which at the time I believe was a few months earlier. It was this combined with my eternal optimism that lead me to say something that has stuck with me all this time...."Edd is going to be ok".
This doesn't seem so bad at first till you realize I'm six hours behind the U.K. and by the time I had said that he was long gone. 
Fast forward to the 27th and I was at home and sick as a dog. My brother had come home from school and was telling me about his day. All was fine then he looked at me and told me the one thing I was the most scared to hear....he was gone. And while I was upset it didn't really hit hard. I do however remember being upset and curious as to why so many people were upset over his death. So the next day when I was feeling better I went on my computer and binged as many episodes as possible and that's when it finally hit me who he was, the impact he had, and that he was indeed gone for good. I cried for god knows how long after that and didn't stop for quite a while. And for the days that followed I was in denial and kept hoping and praying it was an elaborate April fools day joke till it was unfortunately confirmed by Tom.

since this however Edd has inspired me in a way I will never be able to thank him for, he allowed me to see art in a new way. Before him all I wanted was clean and pretty anime drawings. I liked some western styled art and animation but anime was the most appealing in my eyes. When I found eddsworld things changed, I saw a whole new style of art that was so unique and interesting, wasn't the most appealing peruse but I loved it. And it was because of him I wanted to make an artstyle as unique and as crazy as edds. 
I will admit it was rough at first but five years later all that hard work, and wasted paper, was worth it. And to think before him....I used to hate it.

To whoever, if anyone, reads this, all I can really say is thank you. 

I wish i got got to know you earlier....
