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.......

Not Exactly On the Same Page

Joy's spreadsheet


A few months ago I posted what Joy's spread sheets look like , all perfectly notated and aligned.  Well here's what I use to keep track of things.  I know, pretty bad.  I have been dragging these papers around for about two years.  On airplanes, at the beach, in my car, wherever I have been.  Some of the words I've highlighted have faded away, some words I forgot to highlight so I'm not sure if I've done them yet.  Joy said I haven't done the word MANY yet......I KNOW I'VE DONE  THE WORD MANY!!!!!..... ok, where is it...what was it...
