I don't know if it's the official log of O.R.C. but I recall a tusked smiley face being associated with the movement. I've been trying to find some clip art of a tusked smiley face, and it's damned impossible. Fangs, yes, but no tusks. Bull's avatar, is what I'm looking for. This is for personal use, so I assume I'm not treading on any legal toes...
Can anyone help me out here?

You could just grab his avatar from the Shadowrun Universe forum. I'd tell you the link to Bull's imageshack folder, which I think includes it as well, but I can't find it anymore.

I think it appeared in one of the first or second edition books.  I'm pretty sure the Metahuman Rights activist contact in the Second Edition corebook is wearing that as a button.  Unsure though.

You know, I never thought of those as tusks.  I just figured it was an artistic device.

That image always reminded me of the Transient Movement pin from Transmetropolitan.  Damn good comic.  I'm sure the similarities are not entirely coincidental.

Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.

Seriously!  Bull should be the Mayor.  And what's up with Kay St. Irregular?  I thought he was a shoe-in for a position in the UCAS sector of Denver.

Start hunting for similar smileies in the artwork, BTW.

I noticed that in quite a few of the art pieces.  I've seen some others too, though I can't pick them out of memory right now.

So just like how Playboy has the bunny logo somewhere on the cover, we have the Orc logo and other SR smilies stashed away in the art?

What other similiarities are there?

Yeah, I don't think it was ever made into anything official, just a fun little touch one artist liked to toss into his pieces. I've always loved the idea, and for years wore a custom made Orc smiley face pin. Lost that some time ago, and want another.
I also always thought the teef looked a little like the electrical engineering symbol for Resistor, which was a nice touch.

After everything that went on in Denver, I don't think Kay St. wants to be in charge of the UCAS sector.

He'd be SOOOO much better than that Humanis thug that's in office right now.  Hmm...  this gives me an idea for my Denver campaign.
