    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
