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.......

                                  HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Just wanted to wish all of you Moms out there a great day.  One thing I've noticed on mothers day, you see a lot of dads and kids out at the park or the mall or where ever.  Who you don't see joining them is the mom.  You know why?  Because the last thing a mother wants to do on Mothers day is spend her day taking care of anyone!  The only women you see with their families are the poor senior citizen moms, who have lost their drivers licenses a long time age and are taken hostage and forced to have lunch at an all you can eat buffet.
