“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She 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, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. 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.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.

After giving this as a Christmas gift I am sorry for giving this gift. Barely a week has passed and the illustrations can be rubbed off with my finger. It says it's dishwasher safe but now I don't think it is. Whatever ink or paint was used for the illustrations it is a dirty silver on my fingers when rubbed off. I feel washing this any further will turn this into a common glass.

This is a wonderful gift for the cat fancier in your life. My only negative is they are not dishwasher safe. Had I know that to begin with, I would have hand-washed them.

    Comments about Inconvenient Kitty Tumblers- Set of 4:

    I was looking for a unique gift for a cat lover and found it. Glasses were of good quality and the designs were clear and sharp. I wanted something she wasn't likely to find and buy for herself in a local store and found it.

    Purchased these adorable glasses for one of my friends, a fellow cat lover, after my first present to her was misplaced by FedEx. She loved these and said they are adorable. I'll have to look at them next time I visit her.

          It made the recipient Smile They are Cat lovers.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was prompt but it did not include the message on the invoice or packing slip that I requested when asked on the order!!! They did not know who sent it because of that. The order process should not ask for one if they are not going to put it on the paperwork. I would have had it gifted instead.

            I can't vouch for how the product looked (big enough/thickness of glass) but my sister said they are adorable and accurate to how her kitties are
