About the author:
Gene Clements is an artist, writer, architect, and educator. He grew up in the Midwest and has lived in California since the 1970's. Even though most of the time Gene thinks he's eighteen, like Tilly and Elmer he's reminded frequently that a half century has passed since then.
The Tilly and Elmer series began accidently when Gene wrote the first couple of paragraphs of a story about a frisky older couple and then made a drawing of them. His friends thought the paragraphs and drawing were funny and wanted to know how the story ended. Now, for better or worse they know, or at least they will if Tilly and Elmer ever let Gene stop writing about them.
The Sexy Seniors of South Branch Coloring Book
You'll be delighted by the antics of Tilly and Elmer, a pair of frisky sexagenarians from the Midwest, and I hope you'll enjoy applying your creative talents to showing them to be the colorful characters they are. The 30 drawings in this book are based on a selection of illustrations from "The Sexy Seniors of South Branch", a collection of sweet and funny short stories recounting their adventures and misadventures. This book will be especially fun for grownups who have never really grown up!
Tilly and Elmer have been married for close to fifty years, they're still in love, and they know what to do about it. They would appear to the casual observer to be the definition of an "old married couple"; but while they ARE a couple, AND married, they don't consider themselves OLD. In fact, they still feel like teenagers most of the time, although sometimes events remind them that they aren't quite as athletic, skinny, or flexible as they were five decades ago. No matter. They try to recapture their youth anyway; and when they can't quite recapture it, they at least give it a good chase. Along the way, they have some fun and get themselves into, and usually out of, some hilarious situations. What they've lost over the years in body tone, they've gained in expertise, imagination, and good humor; after all, you don't have to be young to be in love and enjoy your share of "quality time" together.
The selected illustrations in The Sexy Seniors of South Branch Coloring Book are sweet, funny, nostalgic, and just a little racy. If you find yourself falling in love with Tilly and Elmer, well, you won't be the first!
