When I came across this blog, the front image immediately stood out. It really portrays the themes of the blog well. After reading through the poetry and creative writing you can tell that this writer is extremely deep and talented. Themes of moral apathy and social problems are the main ones covered. The chosen image above is amazing. You can tell from the content of the blog that the viewers are being asked to look into his skull, his brain and really get involved in the writing.
I also feel inspired by the blog’s name. He explains that the name comes from his favourite chapter in his favourite book The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky. He wanted to inspire others the way the book did for him. “Ask the burning questions that lingered undetected just beneath the surface of my conscious mind”. He really encourages his viewers to comment on his blog. Even if it is negative he still would like to hear it.
I particularly like his poetry section. In my opinion, the style in which he writes his poems give a dramatic effect and takes the reader into the story of the poem. I also appreciate the overall style of the blog. So clean and it gives total focus to the writing.

This portfolio is amazing. I love the layout of the content and the way it is kept so simple and easy to navigate through. The way in which she presents her works is really effective. It keeps the viewer interested and entices them to keep looking.
One of my favourite of her works is Curvey. An Australian magazine hosts a publication competition for the best female talent world wide. She shows of two of her publications. They are so abstract and beautiful.
