Remembering Steve Jobs: Wallpaper Tribute

Oct 6, 2011 - 16 Comments

Steve Jobs silhouette within the Apple logo

This is a rather simple but beautiful tribute to Steve Jobs in wallpaper form. The image is of the Apple logo with silhouetted profile of Steve Jobs forming the bite.

Full size wallpaper here (2560×1600) or click the image above.

This image originated from a young Hong Kong artist, Jonathan Mak, on Tumblr several months ago when Steve Jobs resigned from the CEO position. In light of Jobs passing, the picture has since made its way around the world rapidly on the web, Twitter and Facebook.

Here’s a closeup of the original art:

This particularly high-res desktop background version comes from SimpleDesktops, where someone pasted the above image onto a much larger black canvas to form a nice subtle tribute. It looks best with the dark menu bar.

    I have a exhibit phone thru tmobile, and this morning the wallpaper I had on it changed to the picture of Steve Jobs that is shown lower on this page on the book about him….did this happen to anyone else? It was freaky. Was this some kind of trojan?
