John Rajesh says:
"I've been fortunate to know Bill through the internet. In spite of the distance and unfamiliarity, he still comes through very kindred and insightful. I am grateful for his encouragement that started my portraiture journey. His portraits are subtle, smooth and striking all at the same time. His art is worth mulling over as they seem to provide glimpse to the various treasures that Bill has in his mind."

"If you're determined to get to the bottom of this artist, you better set in for the long haul. It's not that he doesn't put it all out there all the time to everyone, it's just that he's drawing from a well much deeper than most of us have access to delve into. I'm constantly amazed at the magic he's conjuring. Ceaselessly stunned at his creative stamina. This is an artist you cannot miss. He's been my dear friend for decades, and I'm still enjoying the wonder of his person and great works."

"Bill is a very real and wonderful person- able to see others with compassion and insight. Talented and active artist as well- He's got an eye for the unique and mundane alike. He has the talent of showing people the scared and mystic in everyday moments/places/images."

"i dont know why , we are miles away from each other , but something connected , deep and invisible .
Bill is a normal guy in life , we can feel through his daily shots with absent - minded but sometimes really meaningful observations .
I hope he'd live better and better , that's all .

"i love giveawayboy's clean, elegant, and refined observations of the world...he's a pure spirit...childlike in the very best sense...always a wonder to see his pictures"

"the first time I saw giveawayboys photos, i was touched inside, around my spleen. Then he took a picture of it, and published it on Flickr."
April 8th, 2008
"The first time I visited giveawayboy's photostream it was like rediscovering a forgotten friend... his pictures paint so complete a landscape of his world, his art, his spirituality (not to mention his cool thrift swag!) that you can't help but to feel that you've known the man forever.
His photos convey such a genuine fondness for that beauty present in everyday life, a beauty that most people have long stopped bothering to even notice, that you want to come along with him on every trip to the bank or late night stroll around the neighborhood. flickrworld is made all the better for g.b's place in it!"

"This fine man is my great friend and superior art-confidant! He is prolific!, engaged in life and spirit and imbibes a great compositional capability, nee- talent, and offers a non-stop indepth, personalized take on his life and world as well as sharing his wealth of talent and Personality with those close to him and those he openly reaches out to in his community, the Flickr community, LJ, MySpace and who knows how many more! Pay attention to this guy, his work and his words, comments and generosity!"

"The art and talent of giveaway boy is unique. He expresses on canvas what cannot be said in words."
December 6th, 2006
