We’re huge in Japan

August 14th, 2009


Our work for the Utah Museum of Fine Arts was featured in the Nikkei Marketing Journal. The only “Nikkei” I’d ever heard of was this girl I was in a relationship with in junior high. (It didn’t end well and I don’t want to talk about it.) Apparently, they’re the equivalent of the Wall Street Journal, except in Japan. Or at least that’s what they told us.

My Japanese is a little rusty but here are some loosely translated snippets from the glowing review:

“This work makes my heart light and happy.”

“Go to the United State of Utah and look at this beautiful advertising (Ed. – or art, I’m not sure).”

“David Rathbun was a punk in seventh grade.”

“Craftsmanship of this caliber spans culture and results in many terrier dogs.”

“Gary Sume is a handsome man with many fingers.”

I told you my Japanese was rusty.
