“Drawing Autism”–FYI

Dear Autism Advocate,

My name is Jill Mullin. I am an educator with 9 years of professional
experience working with children and adults who have been diagnosed
with autism; I have a MS in Education as well as a MA in Behavioral
Psychology. I am currently working on a book, provisionally titled
DRAWING AUTISM. The book has a scheduled release date of November 2009
and will be published by Mark Batty Publisher, a publisher that
specializes in books about visual communication.

Over the years I have become more and more interested
in the illustrations people diagnosed on the autism spectrum create.
Of course, the visual is how all of us inform ourselves of our places
in the world, but I have found illustrations by people with autism
possess a unique perspective that is acute, both in how they see the
world and how laypeople can be helped to understand how autistic
people may see the world.

Currently I am collecting submissions of works from many artists, all
the work must be completed by individuals on the autism spectrum.
Works will be collected through May 15th, 2009.

I am writing with the hope that you or someone you know may be
interested in submitting artwork for consideration for this book. A
limited number of artwork will be selected for inclusion in the book.
A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to autism
organizations.

If you are interested in participating in this project please scan and
email any submissions. If you prefer to send samples via mail, my
publisher’s address is listed below. If a work is chosen to be part
of this book, release forms will be sent to the artist from the
publisher.

If you have any specific questions regarding this project please do
not hesitate to contact me. Thank you so much for your time and
support and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Jill Mullin, MSED BCBA
