As I was grading a kid's handwriting homework (wherein they endlessly rewrite their vocab words/phrases) I noticed s/he had just filled up his/her last page in his/her notebook. So I thought I'd draw a quick little sketch in the back cover.

There's an incredible story we read at Tokyo University called "On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning." Wonderful read. I love that nomenclature: the 100% girl. No relation to the art besides that.

That story blew me away when I read it for the first time—and every time I've read it since.

Me, too. It's one of the few texts that is actually life-, or at least perspective-changing.

And that concept always makes train rides beautiful and exciting; which is why I find New York and Japan so endearing and electric. Even just walking a busy street is entirely another experience after reading 100%.
