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 ROCKSTAR GRANDMA & GRANDPA MUGS:

      I gave these to my parents (with ultrasound pics inside) to announce my pregnancy. As soon as my Dad saw the "Grandpa" on the mug, he figured it out. They loved them, and I thought it was a really cool way to tell them. The mugs seem durable and the designs are really cute. My only complaint is they came in two different types/sizes of boxes, one of them being plain brown and taped up. Not a big deal, but I would have liked if both mugs came in the nice white box.

              Comments about ROCKSTAR GRANDMA & GRANDPA MUGS:

              We're giving these as thank you gifts to grandparents when we stay at their vacation home. The only complaint I had (and it's being overly picky) is that the 2 mugs (grandma/grandpa versions) came in different size/style boxes. It would have been nice to give them something that looks more like a set but oh well.

                My husband loves his mug. He is learning to play guitar later in life. He sits in line for lessons with 9 yr. olds. He has a great jazz guitar teacher. Anyway , he loves his mug it boosts his confidence!

                  This was a Christmas gift from my youngest grand daughter and while working on a project in the basement I swung around and knocked the cup to the floor. The handle broke off and the cup was intact but my heart was broken. I immediately called my daughter-in-law and found out where it was purchased and placed the easy to use order through my computer. In a few days the cup arrived and has been carrying my morning coffee and love of my grand daughter around with me.

                        I bought this gift as a gag gift for an older friend. I also have previously purchased the Rock star Mom and Dad mugs for my mother and father. They use them almost every morning for their coffee and they love them. Original!
