"In part five, we take a look at Ed’s life as an artist. From being coaxed out of hoarding his early paintings in Huntington Beach to confronting the homophobia of the 90s New York skate scene and finally finding success with his Teenage Smokers series, Ed’s art career has been defined in much the same way as his skate career"-VICE
"In part four, Ed finds himself out of work and in the depths of an uninspired era for skateboarding. But out of the dregs of the 90s came Ed's ambition to strike out on his own and found a scrappy company called Toy Machine. He ended up producing Welcome to Hell, the video that would cement his legacy. Check it out."- VICE
