Drawn From Life

Illustrated in the iconic style of a coat of arms, this keepsake print honors a child's birth in a regal, timeless fashion, but with a few playful, contemporary twists. Patricia Carlin's charming, colored-pencil drawings depict adorable toys and animals surrounding a shield that holds special details about the new arrival, including his or her weight, zodiac sign, parents' names, and the town and state in which the baby was born. Designed in Pennsylvania by Patrica Carlin. Printed and framed in Oregon. Ready to hang (wire hanger).



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.

“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.
