Very impressive. Lovely tribute to a true visionary.
Wow, such artistry, couldn't think of a better medium to honour him. Bravo
Love this, nice one Utku!
not a huge apple fan, even though work forces me to use them (!), but this is very classy and a worthy tribute to a man who saw technology and art move forward together in many ways. cheers guys.
Simply awesome guys! Keep up the good work. I've sure Steve would be proud of the work you've just created. RIP Steve, we'll be missing you.
This would have been Google worthy! You should submit it.
Stunning tribute, guys.

Brilliant. Unique. A beautiful tribute to the Edison, Tesla, and Henry Ford of our fortunate generation. There will never be another like him. Yet, one day, there will be another with simimlar genius and we will know of that person by our seeing them on one of Mr. Jobs creations.
Good job guys, A befitting tribute to Steve. Adieu Steve.
I love it! And I would so much like to order a printed poster of this art, can it be done in any kind of way?
I'd love to have a poster or print of this...
Simply beautiful guys.
I double Niklas' request, this would be such a fantastic poster! Any chance to get an high res version or simply order a poster? Cheers guys
Stunning. Spooky, but stunning. I like it! Well done.

wow. this would be really amazing if it were not an exact copy of something that i did with my prop stylist megan caponetto here in NYC, and was published ...... in september. I have heard of homage, but this is sad. Shame on MintDigital
sorry, and it was published in US Newsweek.
yep, a total copy of my pieces - both published. The first one was in November 2009 in Fortune magazine. Not cool at all!

Hi Megan and Christopher,
I'm really sorry you feel you were ripped off.
I can promise is that Ben and Genis (the guys who created the portrait) and the rest of the team at Mint Foundry would run a mile from anything that has been tried before. If you had met the guys, you'd realise it's not in their make up to copy.
It might be worth reading the original blog post, as it gives a sense of how the portraint came about: http://foundry.mintdigital.com/post/11104229347/a-tribute-to-mr-steve
Very sorry you feel you were copied but I believe it is a genuine coincidence.
Sorry, comments are now closed on this post.
