Steve Jobs Art: Fans, Artists and Designers Pay Tributes to the Apple Co-Founder
Fans, artists and designers have found creative ways to pay tribute to Apple co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs, who has died at the age of 56 after a long and highly public battle with cancer.
This digital mosaic, made out of Apple gadgets, was created by Greek designer Charis Tsevis.
This idea of incorporating Steve Jobs' silhouette into the bite of the Apple logo, symbolising both Jobs' departure and lingering presence at the core of the company, was released by nineteen-year-old Jonathan Mak, a student at Hong Kong's Polytechnic University School of Design. However, it has since emerged that an almost identical logo was designed by Chris Thornley for Creative Review earlier this year.
Here's a portrait of Steve Jobs made out of parts of a Macbook Pro, issued by web design company Mint Digital. They say: "It seemed fitting to create a tribute to him using the spare components of the old Mac book pro. Every component has been broken down to its most basic form and reassembled into a portrait of Steve Jobs."
Tom Gaffney, 21, carved a portrait of Steve Jobs into an apple, before laying his tribute outside the Apple store in Birmingham. Tom, from Burton, Staffordshire, worked into the early hours on his tribute. He said: "I'm a big fan of his work. He's a genius and an influence to so many people."
Bluewater Productions and Paperless Publishing have decided to publish a comic book biography of Steve Jobs. It will be available as an e-book this week on the NOOK and Kindle. The 32-page issue is drawn by Chris Schmidt (with cover art supplied by DC artist Joe Phillips). The standard edition will be available in comic shops, bookstores and online retailers including Amazon from October 27.
Here's another mosaic created by Charis Tsevis, using images of iPhones, MacBooks and iPods, as well as various types of Apple software.

Many people have chosen to pay tribute in a simple, yet fitting, way - by leaving an apple with a bite taken out of it outside an Apple Store. These one were seen outside an Apple Store in London.
