Is Debbie Tilley Available?

Is Debbie Tilley available?
On June 28, 1995, yes that was 15 years ago, my rep, Richard Salzman received a call from the art director at Gallaudet University Press. Is
Debbie Tilley available to do samples for an up coming project? We're going to be publishing a signing dictionary for children, needing
around 1000 illustrations.... and that's how it all started....

Fast forward 15 years:
On December 4, 2010, Richard, my rep received an email from the Editorial Director of Gallaudet University press, they were ready to get started
on the Children's Sign Language Dictionary! I think that is the longest lead time in freelance history! As it turned out, I had been illustrating children's picture
books nonstop for a long time. The thought of doing 1,000 individual drawings sounded so great to me, I couldn't wait to get started.......

Word: BEST

In case you were wondering who Ivey is.  She is Ivey Wallace the art director for Gallaudet University Press, which is part of Gallaudet University.  Rarely does she ever reject a sketch, she's one of the reasons this dictionary is going to be so awesome.  She never puts any pressure on me to hurry up, likes just about everything, and pays me very well.  What more could an illustrator ask for!
