Round Robin Book Signing
ROUND ROBIN is a collaborative illustration project undertaken by Daniela Stijleva, Katy Wu, and Jennifer C. Chang.
The book signing and reception will be held on Saturday, November 5 from 2-5pm at the Rare Device gallery.
It consists of three books, each centered on a series of fifteen illustrations that are connected through an "add-on" word game. Each artist takes a turn in providing a word inspired by the one previously supplied, until 15 two-word combinations are completed (ex. A+B, B+C, C+A). Each artist uses only words written by her counterparts as inspiration for her illustration. Within each painting, the artist is challenged to create artwork on subjects outside her comfort zone. At the same time, the artist can bring the power of interpretation and imagination to bear on the topic. Thus, each illustration in the book is connected to the previous and subsequent pages in a literal sense.

Before moving to the United States Daniela had worked in the Canadian animation industry since 1997, where she drew for 2D commercials, television series and an independent film at the National Film Board of Canada. In 2002, Daniela graduated from the Classical Animation program at Sheridan College.
Along with her career in film, Daniela cultivates an avid interest in other storytelling art forms through projects like Round Robin and live-action short films. She has taken part in the charitable group exhibits "Totoro Forest Project" and "Art Blocks For Ghana".
Eventually she returned to Pixar as a full time employee, where she worked for two years as a Sketch Artist and met Jennifer Chang and Daniela Strijleva. Katy is currently an assistant art director at CinderBiter studios and is working on a feature film where puppets move around. In her spare time she works on art projects like Round Robin, comics, and short films.
She pursues her own stories at night after work, and recent projects include a story in Afterworks 2, charity artwork for Totoro Forest Project, artwork for Tr!ckster, and Round Robin - a collaborative art book with Daniela Strijleva and Katy Wu. She enjoys meeting and working with creative people from all over the world, and is grateful to do just that both at work and at home.
