Please don't be rude. There's no point to it.
To me, I think not loving all of edgar's work is exactly why I love edgar's work. Because when he hits, his mind is so complex and brilliant and creative, and his style can literally go anywhere, from simple lumpy characters to amazing linework, from sprawling works to basic chest pieces, from (often twisted) humor to pure artistry. And because he has so much to offer in general, even his pieces I haven't loved, whether because they were too cutesy, or too weird even for my tastes, or in a style that was sloppy without his normal charm, or whatever, still has something different, and very different, especially in the world of woot. You obviously see more Edgaresque work outside woot, and at other tee sites, but he still brings something personal to the table all the time, and that makes it worth seeing.
By comparison, many other designers bring the same nonsense every week, so that even when they step out of the box (not that they do often, or go very far out), it seems generic and uninteresting.
