Hitotoki Hitoban


Just a reminder that tomorrow night (January 29) is the “Hitotoki Hitoban” event/party at The Pink Cow in Shibuya (19:00-22:00, free entrance). It’s a celebration of all things Hitotoki, and will include readings by a few of the contributors, including me, ULESHKA, Joseph Badtke-Berkow, David Cady, Ashley Rawlings, and I believe a few video readings (Momus has one, if I’m not mistaken). Drop by and say hello, should be fun.

Also, Hitotoki is on the lookout for illustrators who would like to contribute to the site — I’m assuming for pieces that would accompany stories. Get in touch!

Ikebukuro at Night


My friend Max has been a man on a photography mission ever since he got a Canon EOS 5D last month, and what you see here, a shot of Ikebukuro at night (larger version here) is one of the results. He also has an interesting gallery of shots covering the homeless and their surroundings, which he took for a project that you can read more about here.
