This Steve Jobs portrait is a digital painting sketched in 2011 on the tragic event of his passing. In commemoration of all that he has contributed to this world, we share this tribute today as it marks the tenth year of his demise.
We drew this painting using Adobe Photoshop, a Wacom tablet, and a various collection of brushes. The brush stroke style we used in a traditional sketching manner to give the feel of a classical drawing.
Steve Jobs’ Portrait, for the loving memory of Steve Jobs.
“Design isn’t just what it looks like and feels like — design is how it works.”
Steve Jobs believed that good design was a key component of evolution. Jobs’ design philosophy has a strong sense of morality, he believed in simplicity and easy-to-use, and that good design and innovation could make a difference in people’s lives and contribute positively to society as a whole. We very much enjoyed the process of Steve Jobs portrait painting as his design thinking has inspired us in our UX design for our website.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
