I'm an artist interested in many styles, but not tethered to any certain one.
I'm also a slave to photoshop, if not used daily I feel the gods will curse me
and take away the gift they gave me.
I'm on my 2econd life here on Flickr,a ghost of my former self so to speak,only
a handful of friends know of my other self and I dearly appreciate their friendship
and secrecy,I shall not name names,they know who they are ...........friends.

A few things about me:
I'm moody, sometimes dark but always try to be kind.
Two things I couldn't live without, photoshop and my imagination.

Tales Of Mystery & Imagination
The October Country
Books Of Blood
Hauntings: Tales Of The Supernatural
Lord Of The Rings Trilogy

Too many to list, anything but country and rap.
Wood burning in a fireplace
Be aware that a halo has to fall only a few inches to be a noose. "Dan McKinnon"
Art is either plagiarism or revolution. "Paul Guaguin"
Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle which fits them all. "Anonymous"
Hypocrisy is the lubricant of society. "David Hull"
The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone. "Harriet Beecher Stowe"
My eyes make pictures, when they are shut. "Samuel Taylor Coleridge"
If you're here for my textures, I'm humbled,and hope they find a good home with you,but if you're here for my photos or digital artwork, they're mine, so do not take.
If you were to ask first, chances are I will give the okay, please ask first and credit me if used.
BTW...Do not make me a contact and/or fave an image of mine if you do not have any images,contacts or profile available to me, that doesn't give me anything to indicate your intentions,in other words, sharing access to images is about SHARING access to images.
I will block members as soon as this occurs.
Thanks for dropping by my photo stream, your comments mean the world to me, and I hope you visit again.

"Well - Ladies and Gentlemen - what should I say - to a man whos work tells by itself?! Beautiful? Is not enough! Gorgeous - is better.
But Jerry is much more than a terrific artworker and photographer. For me most important is his sense of creativity. He is an artificer of the universe of images. He lives creativity by the origin meaning of this word - he never copies, he re-creates new realities.
And most of all, he inspired me soooo much with his work and his mega textures, that I myself changed my own creativity completely! He brought back to me the joy on my own work.
And for that I am thankful and grateful till my last days on earth!
Wish to meet you once in a while, having a glass of wine and talk about God and the world - as we say...
Your friend Mario
Summer of 2009, Cologne, Germany"

Thanks for share iwith us your art in Flickr."

"Skeletal Mess has a talent, and uniqueness of vision, that seems boundless. He is an extraordinary artist, and a personal inspiration for so many here on flickr. Coupled with his artistic vision and flawless execution of his work, is his incredibly generous and kind spirit. His art in itself is intoxicating, but coupled with the gentlemanly nature of the artist, his stream becomes downright addicting.
Take the time to lose yourself in the worlds he creates, take the time to marvel over the attention to detail, but most of all take the time to get to know this generous spirit as the utterly charming individual he is.
My world, and way of seeing it, has not been the same since the day I happened upon his work. He has been my muse, and for that, I am eternally grateful."

"My friend here Mr. Jones (aka skeletal mess) has become an inspiration in my day. I look forward to the compositions he creates and shares with us here. He brings light to the dark places. He pays attention to even the smallest of details and truly brings his photography alive. I am in love with his textures and find they add a spark to my work that pops ON when I click "blend"~
I am grateful to have him as a contact. He is truly one of the grand talents here in Flickr =)"

".I like everything of You:
the art you make, the exquisite manners you have, the special taste for mixing colours and create textures which become a pure bliss to blend with my pictures
.it's all simply ...Perfect.
You are an important drop of fuel to my creativity.
I'm so grateful you came into my Flickr life. Thank you,

"Possessing a talent both unique & extraordinary….Skeletal Mess is a true artist & gentlemen ~ his art & textures are among the finest I have seen.
His work is truly breathtaking ~ the blending & attention to detail is outstanding & he can create an atmosphere that will give me shivers.
I feel honoured that our paths have crossed in Flickrland & look forward to seeing so much more of his wonderful inspirational work in the future. Don’t ever stop."
