Drawn From Life

Illustrated in the iconic style of a coat of arms, this keepsake print honors a child's birth in a regal, timeless fashion, but with a few playful, contemporary twists. Patricia Carlin's charming, colored-pencil drawings depict adorable toys and animals surrounding a shield that holds special details about the new arrival, including his or her weight, zodiac sign, parents' names, and the town and state in which the baby was born. Designed in Pennsylvania by Patrica Carlin. Printed and framed in Oregon. Ready to hang (wire hanger).

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

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 and wrote copy for several product lines for the new venture.

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."
