iCONSUME: This is a series I designed exclusively for ASK MEN magazine for an article about me and the CONSUME series. It is inspired by the narcissism of the iPHONE culture and the subsequent impact on social networks and the social interactions between people in the real world.
iHOE: You all know one of these types of girls. She loves the attention you give her so she poses in her panties, showing you her ass with her puckered ducklips. There she is, standing in her bathroom thinking she's all hot, not realizing that you can see her tampon box, kitty litter, dirty clothes on the floor and her curling iron. She's an INSTAhoe using her phone for Instagram pics all day everyday. She loves herself and you should love her too.
iBRO: You all know him. He's the guy that rocks his Abercrombie clothes and his white college football hat backwards in flip flops and cargo shorts while wearing enough cologne to gag a Kardashian in a sex tape. He's a Bro, Brah and a Breh all in one, who loves taking selfies in the mirror of his abs and also of himself at the gym. He thrives on your comments and his ego is the only thing that keeps his brain running. He's an iBRO.
iLOVEME: You know this girl, you see her every day on Instagram and Facebook. She wants to show you her new clothes, her new manicure, her food, her cleavage and her puckered duck lips in every picture she takes. In return she wants you to feed her appetite for commentary that supports her ego and uplifts her fragile self esteem that rests solely upon her looks. Her idea of a quality day is getting her nails done, changing her hair color then taking more selfies. She's always thinking about how many comments she'll get on Instagram. She loves herself and you should love her too.
iZONEOUT: He's that bearded hipster bro in a flannel with the man bun, and his skinny jeans at the party. He's zoning out on his phone ignoring the world around him and the life that is right in front of his eyes, getting his digital fix of social commentary on Facebook instead of in the room he is actually present. He stands in the middle of the sidewalk, obstructing the way of others as he zones out on his phone texting his tribe of hipster bros this cool picture he just took of a craft beer.
