The Dandy Project was featured in the August 2010 issue of L’Officiel Hommes China, aptly headlined “Online Fun”. I can’t begin to express my appreciation for this kind gesture on the part of the L’Officiel Hommes’ editorial team.
(L’Officiel Hommes China August 2010 cover) Blokes in banana hammocks might not be a common sight on this blog, but it amuses me to ponder upon what sort of “online fun” the visual is insinuating.
I had a friend translate the article to me and I was floored as to how so much praise can be contained in such little space. (After all, one Chinese character, more or less, stands for one word.) Something the author said about “the blogger using his God-given talent” made those messy afternoons with newspapers all over my apartment living room and paint everywhere from my camera screen to my eyelids worthwhile.
Apologies for the delayed public expression of gratitude, but it took quite a while for me to get hold of a good scan of the feature. Many thanks to Quan for the scan of the article. Friends in China and Hong Kong, pick up a copy!
