Greetings!

Well folks, we’re almost at the finish line of an incredible year! If you had asked me January 3rd of 2021 how I thought it was going to go, my answer would have probably been pretty bleak.  I  was alone for the holidays (which didn’t feel great), freshly single (not of my choosing), and just straight up burnt out from the pandemic (as you all were/are). 11 months later I’m so proud that I can say that I’ve turned all of that negativi-shit around!  (Yes I just made-up my own word)

Instead of burying my head in sorrow, I ran straight towards it. I asked for help, and I got it. First in the form of therapy, which I have to say, everyone should try. Then help came in the form of an assistant, and a bookkeeper - both women are fundamental not just to my success over the year, but also in strategic planning for 2022. (Because we’ll have to top 2021 somehow haha).

A lesson that pops up every few years for me since I’ve started my business is that when you experience a loss, or say “no” to a project or relationship that isn’t right for you, it leaves a lot of room for better possibilities. It doesn’t feel like a “better possibility” is going come when you’re down there in the sorrow spiral, but change is inevitable, and nothing stays the same for long. Including the heavy, uncomfortable emotions. (I hate when people say stuff like this, but it’s true!) I said no to a relationship with breakup pain, I said no to stress over learning accounting and the work load… and that made room for more collaborations, more time spent with friends I needed, a cute ass puppy,  more time in nature, and maybe a few awards ;) (Fatimah will fill you in on some the latest fun projects below)

There’s s till a bit of time left in 2021, I’m excited for what’s around the next corner for Coal and I. I hope to update you all one last time before the new year, but in the meantime - I wish you the happiest holiday season!  

Love u! 

XO, 

Patrick

Once again Patrick makes magic with the Chicago Blackhawks. Check out this awesome helmet (named Courage) he designed for Marc Andre Fleury, the goalie of the Blackhawks for Native American Heritage Month in the US.

The inspiration was the 7 grandfathers represented by the feathers to pay homage to Fleury's wife Anbenaki who's Mi'Kmaq descent and woodland florals inspired by the beading found on Indigenous clothing, also florals and Fleury go together.
