The Vanity Project: Patterlogos.

I realize that this is probably the stupidest thing I've ever posted but the fanboy in me has always assumed that the Pattersons and their friends need logos. As you saw with my mock-up calendar, I'd started said project and have now finished the the blasted thing.

I used the logos Valve created for their combat-themed hat simulator Team Fortress 2 as an inspiration. While some of the symbols (flying coffee cup for Elly, train for John, trumpet for Phil, null symbol for Georgia) are obvious, some get a bit obscure.

As by way of example, Mike's symbol came to me because he impresses me as being a crappy son, a crappy brother, a crappy friend, a crappy boy friend, a crappy husband, a crappy father, a crappy author....this means that the best symbol for him is a toilet. This is also why I used a plunger for Mira. How else do you clean a clogged toilet of a man like him?

As for the different colors, if someone is being a jerk, they're blue because blue attacks; if they're absorbing jerkishness, they're the red that defends.
