NEW: I'm now making music, JOIN ME ON SOUNDCLOUD!

NEW: Prints of this artwork now available!

For a visionary man who changed the way we live and communicate... RIP

You can see some details here:…

This portrait is only made with flat circles on a black background.

Every circle has a single color, a single tone and a single size.

I placed each circle one by one. It's a time consuming method.

See the full "Digital Circlism" series:…

If you wish, you can also view this making of my portrait of Elvis Presley
(video) to understand how I'm exploiting this technique with circles...

The above portrait was featured on "Cult Of Mac" in March 2012.

The way it looks is strange to my eyes.... R.I.P. Steve jobs. He made the best technology ever until he died then apple made everything suck. I wish he were still alive, who knows? If he WERE still alive (too bad he isn't) he would have probably made the i stuff he makes so popular and heck, maybe even change humanity! But sadly that isn't going to happen since he's gone... :iconsadcryplz: :iconsadplz:

These are interesting (in a good way). One correction. Jobs personally didn't really change anything, but he did market it, that's what he was really good at.
Thank "The Woz" and a large number of excellent engineers for the rest.

I think you forgot to add the tiny circles in on the right side of his forehead.
