Take Your Family for a Spin!

When a regular fixie simply won't do, the whole family will look sweet upon the seats of this bicycle built for all of you—there's even a place for your pup, too! Led by your choice of a couple or an individual parent or grandparent, a colorful cast of characters by Patricia Carlin are custom designed to look like your family riding along on a tandem bike built for 1-14. Choose hair and skin color to match your pedaling clan – even your family pet can defy four-legged logic and join you for a ride in the park.

Designed in Pennsylvania by Patrica Carlin. Printed and framed in Oregon. Ready to hang (wire hanger).

Mounted on an FSC-certified and conservation quality matboard. The hand-assembled frame consists of durian wood. This wood comes from a Malaysian tree whose lumber is harvested after it can no longer bear fruit. New trees are replanted in fruit orchards to replace the ones cut.

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
