“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.

Perfect gift for dog lovers


My son is a dog lover so this was the perfect gift for him. Not only is it decorative for his room but it shares fun facts about his favorite breed, has a tasteful/attractive depiction of the breed and font is stylish and fun. It's also a soft pillow to lay on.

I received this pillow as a Christmas present from my to-be-mother-in-law just days after my Great Dane passed away. Her gesture was sweet, but the artwork and poem were absolutely perfect! I love this pillow!
