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." collection

      Comments about MOOD BAROMETER MUGS:

      I bought this set for my dad, who is an avid coffee drinker. My mom is helping him create his man cave, and this seemed to be the perfect gift for the coffee bar. The mugs are standard diner-sized, not for specialties such as lattes or espressos. The colors are vibrant and the motif is unique. My dad was surprised and was pleased with the different moods. My only concern is that it is recommended to hand wash the mugs - not practical for a busy family, but perfect for a retired gentleman working around the house. My dad will use the same coffee cup day in-day out, so the set is perfect for him.

          Comments about MOOD BAROMETER MUGS:

          This was a Mother's day gift for my stepmother and she thought they were very cute and clever. The only thing that irritated me a bit was that the words on one of the mugs were faded and looked like they were peeled off like part of a sticker. It did not specify if these were microwave safe, however, I know they are hand wash only, which can be a pain, but my stepmother has so many dishes that aren't dishwasher safe, I doubt she minds. All and all, it was a hit and we joke about them in the morning when my dad and I can easily see what kind of mood she'll be in!

            This was given as a gift to a daily coffee drinker. She absolutely loves them. She brings them to work to warn her co-workers about her daily moods.
            These mugs are great!

              I bought these mugs for our aunt for her birthday. She really appreciates quirky things, and roared laughing over the phone when she called us as she reviewed the mugs sayings! I haven't seen these mugs in person since she lives many states away, but she raves about them! In other phone conversations she will randomly giggle about which mug she is using or serving to her friends. I had one issue with the shipping on this: [...]

                I ordered these as a gift, but was very disappointed when they arrived. They are not dishwasher safe, and the finish is rough. Even with handwashing, it appears that overtime the mugs will fade. These would be nice if they had a glazed finish over the paint. They are also very dull in color compared to how they look in the catalog & website. I am sending them back for a refund tomorrow.

                  I bought these mugs as a gift for a friend. She loved them and they are very unique. The only problem is that the paint was coming off of one of the mugs when we took them out of the box. I hope that the paint will not come off with washings. I would have given this product 5 stars if the mugs were dishwasher safe.
