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.......

Progress Report.....

Here's a progress report for the month of April......uh, do we really have to talk about this?  My goal was to have 100 sketches done by the end of the month.  I have a long way to go.  There is no way I could have a job where I had to show up for work every day and just start coming up with ideas, 9-5.  My boss would look out the window and say,"what the hell is she doing outside pulling weeds?"  Today is the day though, here come the sketches.
