UPDATE, JULY 17, 6:30 A.M.: So far, talent has exceeded volume when it comes to submissions to our contest aimed at finding a new logo for Newport Beach City Councilman Scott Peotter, who agreed to take the City of Newport Beach seal down from his newsletter after some cutting observations about same-sex marriage and the LGBT community.

Newport Beach Councilman Scott Peotter Now a "Victim" After Whipping Up LGBT Shitstorm

The first submission we received was this one from Mark Mollner:

Guess you had to be there ... on the ark, I mean.

Matt Matthews submitted two:

Says the artist: "What could be more Newport Beach than John Wayne in some fishnet stockings?"

Love those gams!

Note that a break is being inserted because the following are not safe for work. Then again, I don't know where you work, so maybe they'd let this stuff fly there. But just in case ...
 
Here is Mr. Matthews' amplification on the Duke theme:

Says the artist: "What could be more Newport Beach than John Wayne in a feathered boa surrounded by jovial members of the Balboa Bay Club?"

And here I thought he walked that way because of all that time on horses!

Finally, I don't want to sway the judges, but I believe this one will be, ahem, hard to beat:

ORIGINAL POST, JULY 10, 7:08 A.M.: Since Newport Beach City Councilman Scott Peotter is looking for something to replace the City of Newport Beach seal he had on his political newsletter--until he agreed with the mayor to remove the official marker in the wake of a national flap over cruel ramblings he made about the LGBT community--we here at the Weekly thought we should help a brother out. That's why we are reaching out to you, our talented readers, to come up with a new logo for Peotter's newsletter.

In fact, let's make it a contest, shall we? For inspiration, click on this link ...

... to get an idea what all the holler is about.

Next, all you need to do is create a logo, take an image of your submission and email it to mcoker@ocweekly.com. Or you can send a hard copy to OC Weekly, 2975 Red Hill Ave., Ste. 150, Costa Mesa, CA 92626 - Attention: Matt Coker.

Submissions will be run past a panel of judges to be appointed, and the winner will get whatever I can squeeze out of the Mexican-in-Chief. Meaning it will probably come in a bottle. If anyone else has prizes they want to contribute to the winner, let me know in the comments section.

Good luck and get to work!

P.S. If you want to use rainbow-colored crayons in honor of the local politico who started this whole mess, all the better.
