Patricia Carlin

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

    It's well made and not too heavy for a key chain. Exactly what I thought it would be when looking at the picture.

      Comments about ROCKSTAR MOM & DAD KEYCHAINS:

      This keychain is a beautiful, two-sided homage to the great parents in your house, family, and life. It was a Mother's Day present to the moms I know who ROCK. There's no better way to tell someone their hard work is, if not paying well, at least earning them groupies.

      The finish is gorgeous, but since it's going to be dangling and nestling and jostling around with keys all day, it's going to scratch. Early and often. Not a big deal, since the images are embossed and can't be scratched away. But the tons of scratches are irksome, since the finish starts as yummy brushed pewter goodness. All the scratches really do is dull the fancy brushed finish to a slightly shinier finish.

      The appropriate weightiness, understated awesomeness, and clever head-banging-ness of this keychain make it a great gift.

      Rock on.

          Comments about ROCKSTAR MOM & DAD KEYCHAINS:

          I received this as a Fathers Day gift from my 5 year old son. I loved it. Main problem? IT'S NOT MEANT TO BE USED AS AN ACTUAL KEYCHAIN! I did not attach it to my keys immediately, because I hung it up in my kitchen on display after getting it. Then I made a big mistake a few days later by actually trying to use it as a keychain and attaching it to my keys! After about an hour in my pocket, whith nothing but the keys it was attached to, it was COMPLETELY scratched and gouged beyond recognition! There were chunks missing from it! They must use the softest metal in the world for this thing! I still used it because of the sentimental value to it, intending to eventually complain to the maker and request a replacement. But, this morning, it completely FELL OFF somewhere! after just a few days of use!!! Like they used a paper clip for the links in the chain attached to the ring!! I have requested a replacement because of the meaning of the gift. If I receive it, I'll be sure to just hang it somewhere. If not, I WILL NOT recommend this item or company to anyone that wants a quality product!

              My friends were having an adoption shower thrown for them as couple. The usual baby gifts would not work because the child they were adopting was 6 years old. He was already over the moon for his new daughter, and this keychain was the perfect gift for him. He was thrilled!
