Here are the guidelines for creating an avatar. 

Capture map shapes from a solid-outline drawing (using gis shapefiles is optimal).

Use a graphical editor to se the size and colors according to the guidelines below:
(I use Graphic Converter on a Macintosh)

Width=75px (all should be 75: can add canvass size)
Height Max: 140px (not fixed)
Font is Palatino 10pt (but if you don't have, Times can substitute)
RGB Color
Outline: 353535
Background: DDDDDD (make transparent)

Shape
Independent: 00DD00
Democratic: DD0000
Republican: 0000DD
Libertarian:FFFF00
Other: FF9900

The text depends on the color: and should either be DDDDDD or 353535

For country labels, use two-letter internet code.  These can be found here

Please save as four-color GIF.  Once complete, you can email them to me and I'll add to the directory.
Thanks,
Dave

Would it be possible to add other colors for at least another two parties?  We have a few Green Party and Constitution Party supporters on this forum; probably about as many as there are Libertarians.
