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.

I ordered this for my husband for Christmas and he loves it! It was his favorite gift! The artwork is exceptional and the colors are bright and exactly as they appeared online. The process of ordering was easy. I appreciated that I was emailed a prototype after ordering, to confirm that it was exactly what I wanted. I made a small change and they sent a new prototype to approve. It was perfect! The frame and the matte are also of great quality.
Wish they has a few more options for the dogs. There was not a really great match for the color of our dog, so I just chose the solid brown dog. Turned out fine. Was really excited that they had pets to choose format all.
My husband was very impressed and this is a memorable and meaningful gift.

When my husband opened the gift on Christmas morning, it was a total bummer because the names on the piece of art were not correct, even though the names on the order sheet that was included in the box was correct. I like to order gifts online because it's easy and usually cost effective. Now, beyond feeling bad when my husband opened the gift because it wasn't right, I have to go through the hassle of retuning it. I probably should've opened the box before putting it under the tree, but we opened our presents at another house and I didn't want it to break so thought it was best to leave it in the shipping box.
