First impressions
:bulletyellow: Simple and elegant design
:bulletyellow: Seems to have the common features

Visual aspects
Your journal has a simple concept that has been done very well.
There's a clear structure to the documents as well.
I'm not really sure about the purple for links and hovering thumbs.
It stands out a lot from the brown and grey. I think a more subtle colour could have been used.

User experience
The skin works out of the box. Copy pasted some lipsum without any html tags whatsoever being a user that didn't read the (...) manual first and it works just fine.
So next up I want to find out about some features it has. <;p> tag works easily for a header, although the p stands for paragraph and a header is not what you would logically expect from something called ';paragraph'.
<strong> is my personal preferance for an easy header tag. Having the same functionality as <b> it doesn't block any html options.
The .feat class is not hard to use either. But it could get a few optimisations. For instance, silly old me just added 6 thumbs on a low resolution.
It doesn't break to a new line, but it overflows and disappears. Instead of using the .feat class as a table, perhaps work from the fact that thumbs cannot exeed 150px * 150px and make fitting shapes around the thumb with that.
This would then enable line breaking again so the overflowing thumbs hop onto the next line.
OR you could mention that you need to use <i> for lines in the artist comments :P

Technical aspects
Although not the most ledgable css I've ever seen, it's all correctly done and has innovative and tidy solutions.
The .feat class does not work correctly in IE, but that seems to be the only thing.
Most of the time some underscore trickery works best for that die hard pain in the ass browser.

Its works as simple as it is designed.
Generally tidy coded and with good document structuring.
Keep up the great work!

It's so simple, and just happens to use colors that will fit my future layout! *-*
Though, I have only one question. May I replace the "My Journal" image at the top right? I know how to, I just wanna make sure I have permission. uwu
