James is the Design Contest Winner!

James_2 Guess what? James is the big winner of the Tokyomango design contest! The majority of you thought that his design was the awesomest, and I agreed. Even though everybody did a great job.

Pictured left are James’ sexy legs. He got those koi tattoos in Japan. Yeah, I know. There’s no leg hair. I wondered about that, too, but James insists it’s neither Nair nor Gilette:

"I do NOT shave my legs. I’m just naturally… more aerodynamic. ;)"

Interestingly enough, even though this is a Japan-themed blog and I am based in the U.S., most of the contestants were neither here nor there. We had 2 from Germany, 2 from Australia, 2 from Singapore, 1 from Argentina, 1 from Canada, and a couple of unknowns. But how rad is that? Thanks you guys! I’m sending all of you some Tokyomango swag courtesy of Strap-ya, so look out for it in your mailboxes in the next week or so!

Coincidentally, James—the winner—not only lives in San Francisco, but works in my building!! It was really weird when we found that out. He is a professional web designer (no surprises there), and we sat down together yesterday to brainstorm the final look of the new site.

So…Congratulations to James for winning, thanks to everyone who entered for their beautiful designs and thanks to everyone who voted for their 2 cents!!

And look out for a redesigned, new and improved Tokyomango in July!
