A Dog's Tale: In Two Parts

In chapter two of our canine chronicle, we find our protagonist has taken a quieter, more passive approach to life than he did in Chapter One. This change in the plot provides a rare glimpse at our beloved hero's inner workings and vulnerability.

Click here to see details of the four "softer side" dog traits:

How to vegetate
How to endure deep shame
How to practice mind control
How to grovel

As you can see from the humorous illustrations and witty "how to" labels, this chapter focuses on teaching us life lessons in relaxation, humility, persuasion and forgiveness.

Patricia Carlin

Patricia started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business. Patricia designed several product lines for the new venture.

"We couldn't afford a writer at first, so I wrote my own copy for the glasses," Patricia says.

Despite the August 2001 launch, the business did well, and Patricia found herself designing a range of tabletop products.

When Red Wheel Weiser Conari Press noticed the glassware at a gift show, they saw book potential. With their help, Patricia produced two books: "Glam Girl" and "Geeky Girl".

Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most.

"For me paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says. "After I had my daughter I rediscovered the power these little sketches have to tell a story. Drawing was a fun way to communicate without language."

Patricia is inspired by Ikko Tanaka, Adrian Tomine and Diane Arbus. She has won many awards for her design work and is the author of "How to Tell If Your Boyfriend is the Antichrist: And if he is, should you break up with him?"

She comes from a long line of RockStar Moms, and aspires to that status on a daily basis. collection
