Last Summer I got an email off Edd of Eddsworld as "one animator to another".
I'd just launched an animation [Nightmare] and I asked him if he could favorite it [as I learned he had Jedi-like YouTube super powers] which he did without any jibba jabba. I was very grateful and to repay the favor I made him a claymation... which I think he liked cause he posted it on his Facebook.
Today I found out that he is no longer with us. I'm deeply saddened by this news. A nice person, a great inspiration.
