Description

The perfect gift for the nerd in your life! Whether it be your geek mom, dad, father, or son, this is a great item for anyone's man cave, bedroom, or office.

Short Description: Vince Gilligan is clearly a genius and his attention to detail and specifically color inspired this 3 piece series.

"I want to do the color timing for each of these episodes where you sit with the colorist and make sure that the color of each individual scene is just the way you want it."
―Vince Gilligan, IndieWire interview, July 2012

Color Theory
Green: Predominantly worn by Walter White
Symbolism: Greed, money, growth, envy
Secondary color: Formed by blue + yellow

Blue: A Primary color Skyler wears most
Symbolism: Loyalty, power, sadness, purity, water, sky, coldness

Yellow: The color mainly worn by Jesse
Symbolism: Methamphetamine, optimism, pleasure, caution, cowardice, fear, pseudo-toughness

The two halves of Walter’s life (Meth & Family) are represented by Skyler’s color, Blue, and Jesse’s which is Yellow. When combined these colors make Green, which is Walter’s color.
The Yellow, Green, and Blue swirls at the bottom symbolize Skyler and Jesse affecting Walter. The swirls obviously flow both ways and into Jesse and Skyler like Walt’s corruptive influence over them.

Smoke
The faint swirls of smoke leaving Walter’s head and reaching towards Jesse and Skyler are deliberately harder to see. This symbolizes Walter manipulating both of them behind the scenes. Notice the smoke doesn’t fully come back to Walter, symbolizing his inability to listen to their council. While viewing all 3 characters you see the larger and hidden picture. The swirls look like horns coming from Walter’s head, symbolizing his true nature shown by his alter ego Heisenberg.

Symbology
The Breaking Bad Symbol (two diagonal squares) are present in each character. They are most prevelent in Walt, and less in Jesse, and Skyler. This symbolizes their amount of involvement with meth.

The 3 subtle backgrounds smoothly blend into one another. This shows what each character brings to their business arrangement. Walt’s background is chemical bonds emphasizing chemistry. Jesse’s background is lines connecting dots symbolizing his networking and person to person drug dealings and hands on interaction with other characters. Skyler’s background is a series of stats and figures relating to her mathematical and accounting skills she uses to launder the drug money.
