Mutsumi is an illustrator of wonder. Each scene is about an encounter,
with the ocean, the sky, wind, whales, or another like us, and every time
her characters are filled with awe. Our stories should do as much to their
readers and listeners.
A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted
to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.
- Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
