    "Surgeon Generals Warning; renegade warrior artiste on the loose, this stream is a graphic stimulant mindfuck where the tame tea-cup ride your on jumps its track and takes a disturbing twist into darkness with spiders spewing black poison words with ancient egyptian orange diode glowing hieroglyphs uttering gutteral murmurs of voices/screams/madcap laughter on black nightmare balloon ridden skies of Octobers midnight. Visual poetic pain jolts neuron spasms of thee cortex stimulating wicked smiles inside geodesic blue flickering t.v. dome tents with tension quivering arrows of fire raining down through firefly glowing meadows...enter if you dare but you have been warned."

    "Man, I came here to make a comment & saw how much love Paul has, or rather a reflection of what he draws out from others, a character reflection. The consistency of voicing in comments says more than any one message could, so I'll leave it at that."

    "I won't prattle on, it's all been said and far more eloquently than I can muster.

    With a wonderfully entertaining use of the old vernacular, he's erudite, articulate, creative & friend!

    Nuff said"

    "always compelling and usually no easy answers (just like life). i like his ambition. now days it is very easy to just straddle the line and not bother with anything that is challenging. if that is your gig, don't bother looking here. always look forward to his new work - never know what to expect. and that's key. my own work is often predictable, owing to my laziness and certain preoccupations. this man is working hard to make an impact. i read somewhere that is what art is all about."

    "Gee what to say first about the|G|™? well in his case, the ™ is a trade mark that stands for talent, courage, sensibility, and most of all kindness. If someone on flickr really encouraged me to continue with my work by his kind remarks it's surely him( and I'm certainly not the only one) . Coz G is the guy that finds the same pleasure in creating as in discovering the creations of others.. Agent provocateur of the fine arts, terrorist of graphic design, creator and curator, he's a guy you'd like to have a pint with discussing all the beauty and ugliness around us. Nice to meet you man... stay as you are!"

    the krankensteins(ready to play family feud) says:

    "G-man, firstly thank you for your creative, spirit driven art. Thank you for sharing yourself with the world and on a more personal level being my friend. The way this dude creates is tantamount to an artistic version of the industrial revolution, in other words, unflagging, night and day. He is quick, sharp and graphic, thought provoking and soul driven. All the bases are loaded with this guy and he is stealing home in the last out in the last inning of the world series and your standing cheering him on cause you just know he is gonna do it and not even a locomotive can stop him. He's a crusher but he is also a dancing bear with a soft spot, but you didn't hear that from me......"

    "The G rocks. He makes you think. He creates many forms of art and is very talented no matter what he is creating. I am so glad to have met G on flickr. He is inspiring. He pushes boundaries.
    He is real.
    And in my opinion, you can't get any better than that!"

    "I like your photographs.
    I like your writing.
    I like your music.
    I like your work.

    But most of all
    I like your inner sharpness,
    Your ability to convey emotions
    and make people think
    through your art.

    In this modern society
    repleted with relativism
    you are able to make a point
    loud and clear.

    Poetically hard.
    Creatively precise.
    Boldly declared.

    And it's a hard traveling,
    I know that,
    but you keep going.

    Absolute respect."

    one under the sun says:

    "Mr. G is a humanitarian. He cares. He challenges. He reveals. He cries. He is scared. He is brave. He is vulnerable. He is strong. He helps. His stream is a roller coaster of emotions, observations, universal truths (often forgotten by many), reminders, screams and whispers. His artwork is superb. Who else can show you a crack in a wall and make you feel like the whole universe is shattering?"

    "A collection of work that is raw emotion. A sponge that continues to seep up the complexities of everyday life and turn it into a lovely visual masterpiece. If you look hard enough into the hail of bombs and bullets, you'll find him leading the way."

    "I thought "well geeze this is strange" when I saw the|G|™'s stream.
    with seemingly random snaps, graphs, and words.
    But as I began to think, [which is so important to do, and the|G|™ consistently reminds us]
    the meaning began to seep through.
    and by seep, I mean flood.
    It's no trickle of ingenuity. It's more like the damned Niagara falls.
    There isn't an emotion with a word or name attached to it that his work doesn't evoke. [and many emotions without proper words and names]
    each and every piece is thought provoking, enlightening, and a wonder.
    and if it isn't enough that the|G|™'s work is like that, it is just so obvious that his work is an extension of himself. Each comment and message leaves me thinking, and I always learn something new from the G.
    and I am elated he's a part of my flickr life. there is absolutely no reason not to enjoy him as a person, or his photostream.
    [unless you're a knuckledragger]
    in which case, you shouldn't bother.
    He's too smart for you."

    Prarne says:

    "Grounded in photographic lore and with a subversive attitude to mainstream societal myths, there's a great sense of power and strength in the art of the|G|, layered with feeling and sensitivity, making you see things in a new way. Couple that with his generous sprinkling of comments and faves, also to newcomers, and you have a person that makes the Flickrverse more alive and interesting. Check out his stream!"

    A Dharma Bum says:

    "Few things excite me like taking a dive into the|G|™’s photostream and be swept away by the flow.
    His art is pleasant and alarming, quiet and loud, calm and edgy, aesthetic and grating, revealing and camouflaged…
    the|G|™ is big hearted, generous, cool, truthful, forthright, intriguing, brilliant, amusing, tempestuous human being.
    Nothing but love and admiration for you, my friend!!!"

    The|G|™ was my first contact on flickr and no one could have a better friend. His inspiring presence delivers warmth to all within his radius."
