Default facebook guy (I would credit who designed this graphic, but for the life of me I can’t find it)

For the three of you that don’t get to my site through facebook (the same three who are the only ones I know in the world not on facebook), I thought I would share a project that I have been entertaining myself with for the past month or so that I like to call,facebook faces! For those of you not on facebook, above is the default profile picture you get when you sign up as a male on facebook. For those of you who are on facebook, maybe I should explain myself…

At the end of my very first post: PRESENCE I asked a bunch of questions that I continue to ask myself everyday as a designer. Like: ‘How do you manage the loss of privacy with the desire to be heard?’ My facebook faces project is a play on the idea of anonymity in a social network. Nerdy? Yes. Do I think you find them as entertaining as I do? No. Will I continue to make them? Depends on how long I find them entertaining. You have an idea for a facebook face? Yes, I would be happy to make one for you!

    Or crossdresser? (x. dresser)
    I’ll keep thinking…

    I happen to find these endlessly entertaining. MacGritte is a personal favorite. Though I have a soft spot for the facebug… and if you made a Mario one, you would have a good set of my Halloween costumes going…

    To keep it up you would need to include grapes and the bride of Frankenstein. 🙂

    OH! and if you do Todd’s costumes, you would need to make Abraham Lincoln! Could you name him “Abraham Linkedin”? even though it’s FB?!
