One of the assignments for Blogging 101 was to pick 5 subjects and search the Reader to follow and comment on a new blog for each category. This turned out to be harder than I thought but I found some unique blogs.
The 5 subjects and blogs I chose are listed below.
Concept Art: Cold Design LTD Absolutely fantastic concept art by an artist who has worked in the gaming industry as a designer and art director. The spaceships are amazing and there is great humor in many of the images. This is a must-see blog for anyone who likes high-tech designs and exceptional painting.
Illustration: Sarah Goodreau This artist has one of the most original and unique styles that I’ve seen in a long time. Her illustrations are masterpieces in simplicity but there is an emotional power present as well. Dark and mysterious or humorous and cute, these paintings are worth viewing.
Astronomy: Lights in the Dark If you love astronomy this is the place to go. I spent over an hour reading posts when I first visited this blog. There is a wealth of articles with information and photographs of the planets, galaxies and the universe. Best of all, they’re presented in a way that is easily understood (for non-science guys like me).
Science and Nature: Stellar Science The byline for this blog is “Exploring the world around us, from the gargantuan to the infinitesimal” and that’s exactly what they do. From the vast expanse of the cosmos to the smallest sub-atomic particles this blog covers it all. Again, the articles are presented in an entertaining and easily understandable way. If you like science, you’ll want to visit this blog.
Folklore: EsoterX This is one of the strangest blogs I’ve ever seen. The articles cover folklore, monsters, mythology, psychology, culture and history with some humor thrown in for good measure. The photographs and illustrations are bizarre and strange (the header image is almost mesmerizing). It’s weird and crazy but I love it!!
I hope you’ll take the time to visit these blogs. Each of them are exceptional!!
I’ll be posting a list of other cool and unusual blogs very soon.
Feel free to post a comment. Let me know what you think!!
