Sip To Share

With all the cat-versus-laser-pointer videos and shareable shorts of kittens inspecting the new goldfish in town, it's pretty safe to say that the internet has become the dog park for cat owners. Created by artist and author Patricia Carlin, these charming mugs feature trios of close up-worthy cat-isms that bring a bit of internet-era humor to your beverage. Mugs made in China. Decorated in Edina, Minnesota.

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 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
