“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.

I bought this to send to my grandpa who lives far away instead of the usual card for father's day, and he loved it! He said the large size is really nice, and he can wrap his cold hands around the mug to warm him up in the morning. The design is adorable, and I got a big hug over the phone when he opened the package :) I sent this along with the 'grandma rocks' mug to hit both holidays at once, and it worked out great.

Just okay

I bought this for my sister who is about to become a grandmother. There's nothing really special about the cup, except it is easy to hold. It is probably too large, really. ...Read complete review

      Comments about Rockstar Grandma or Grandpa Mugs:

      I gave these to my parents (with ultrasound pics inside) to announce my pregnancy. As soon as my Dad saw the "Grandpa" on the mug, he figured it out. They loved them, and I thought it was a really cool way to tell them. The mugs seem durable and the designs are really cute. My only complaint is they came in two different types/sizes of boxes, one of them being plain brown and taped up. Not a big deal, but I would have liked if both mugs came in the nice white box.

              Comments about Rockstar Grandma or Grandpa Mugs:

              We're giving these as thank you gifts to grandparents when we stay at their vacation home. The only complaint I had (and it's being overly picky) is that the 2 mugs (grandma/grandpa versions) came in different size/style boxes. It would have been nice to give them something that looks more like a set but oh well.

                My husband loves his mug. He is learning to play guitar later in life. He sits in line for lessons with 9 yr. olds. He has a great jazz guitar teacher. Anyway , he loves his mug it boosts his confidence!

                  This was a Christmas gift from my youngest grand daughter and while working on a project in the basement I swung around and knocked the cup to the floor. The handle broke off and the cup was intact but my heart was broken. I immediately called my daughter-in-law and found out where it was purchased and placed the easy to use order through my computer. In a few days the cup arrived and has been carrying my morning coffee and love of my grand daughter around with me.
