Steve Jobs and you
Tribute to Steve Jobs
Sculptor Michael Murphy has created an iconic work depicting Steve Jobs.
"I began designing this piece about two minutes after I heard the news of Jobs passing," he tells us. "It's an expanded graphic portrait of Steve Jobs rendered with bulletproof glass that I found in a dumpster. I worked on it non-stop for two days, finishing it on Friday.
"Making a portrait of Steve seemed obvious and necessary. I've used his computers since he began making them. I have always used Apple computers to make my art. I am indebted to Steve Jobs for his creations and his inspiration. There are very few people I idolize in this world. Steve Jobs is one of them."
