ROUND ROBIN

Here is a sneak peek into our illustrated book for APE 2010.
The book is called ROUND ROBIN - a joint effort between Jennifer Chang, Katy Wu and myself. There is no story in the traditional sense of the word but Jennifer came up with the idea of illustrating a word game, which in turn created its own playful narrative. I must say it has been a delightful collaboration!

Today we are happy to share three finished paintings from the book. Below is mine and here are links to Jennifer's and Katy's. Go look at their brilliant work!
