Your four-legged pack member makes you so proud, and this everyday tote features a playful ode that proves it. Each design is unique from head to tail: On one side, a playful acrostic poem celebrating your pup's special traits—from the French Bulldog's "yodel" to the "cavorting escapades" of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi—and on the other, a fetching illustration. Durable with sturdy straps, the bag features a zippered pocket to keep essentials like keys, traditional-sized wallet, and phone easily accessible. Poems by Martin Geller. Illustration by Patricia Carlin. Made in Brooklyn, New York.

“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.
