Pat Patriot was designed in 1960 by Phil Bissell, a cartoonist for the Boston Globe who drew Pat after a vote in the paper resulted in Boston's new football team being christened the 'Boston Patriots.' The nascent Patriots brand didn't have many official materials at that point, and then team owner Billy Sullivan paid Bissell $100 to "let us use it for a year on our stationary," according to Boston's News 10.

...
From 1961 to 1965, Pat adorned jerseys, pendants, and other Patriots merchandise pretty much exactly as Bissell had drawn him.
But despite the inauspicious beginnings, no part of Pat's design was unconsidered, as Bissell recounted to News 10:
When designing Pat, Bissell recalled what the cartoon would need to make the perfect design.
"He's got to be tough. He's got to get in the trenches and dig. That's why, if you notice, his hands are all grimy-because he's dug. He doesn't have nice little white gloves on like Elvis," said Bissell.

But Bissell had drawn Pat very much in the style of a newspaper cartoon. With his clownish white face, pinpoint eyes, and cockeyed grin, Pat wouldn't have looked out of place in a L'il Abner comic. So in 1965, the Patriots logo was redrawn in-house to make him look a little less like he'd just leaped off the comics page: his outfit was redrawn to feature more detail, his face became more realistic, and his flesh was colored in.
...
Phil Bissell was just a cartoonist when he designed the Pats logo in 1960 for $100. Micéal Chamberlain was just the owner's son-in-law looking to make his job easier when he did the same thing in 1979.
