Arty people I know and respect Part Four

Ed (right) pictured here with Red Bubble Co-founder Peter Styles. 
Two men responsible for Red Bubbles global success)

Ed Redman
Red Bubble original whose output is staggering but few
would ever realize it.
One of the driving forces creatively for the art site Ed has crammed a lot in his lifetime.
Ed originally from Britain was visiting Australia and only days before he was meant to leave was in a major car accident that nearly left him a cripple for life.
This turned out to be a blessing and through this delay managed to meet his partner and become a founding member of the Red Bubble team.
Here is still known as the Minister of Tshirts and he must know what he’s doing because he has two best sellers himself.
It’s because of Ed that the Clothing design community on Red Bubble is so strong.
Before Ed had his accident he did have some success in the fashion industry with Wolf Rayett a reference to a celestial body which he also has a passion.

Besides his creative work developing and marketing Red Bubble Ed is also passionate about film, vinyl records, animation, Holga cameras and developed film as well as animation , astronomy ,alternative universes and supporting anyone who’s got an idea with a trace of originality.
I think I’ll just create a list of links to show how talented and underrated an artist this clever man really is.

Holga Madness
A link to just some of Ed's photos taken with a film camers. Being such a well travelled world citizen Ed is never without his trusty camera. The difference being Ed doesn't take happy holiday snaps. Ed has an eye for the architechural, the history , the hidden design by Mother Nature and sometimes the  the plain absurd.
The majority of these photos are "photoshop" free and and the effects and colours are the product of the camera and the man holding it..

More wonderous pics.
