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.......

It's summertime here in San Diego.  Let's see, what would I rather do...sit at my desk and work... or go to the beach ?  Luckily, I have the best job in the world because I don't have to choose.  I just take my work to the beach! I have to admit though, wouldn't it be so nice to have everyone in the world stop working for the summer?  No bills, no worries, no work. We could all be kids for July and August.  Discuss amongst yourselves.......
