The 90 Megapixel Steve Jobs Portraits Made of Apple Products

Realized by the popular Tsevis visual design studio, this might be one of the most impressive portraits of Apple CEO Steve Jobs you’ve ever seen. The design was commissioned by Italian magazine Panorama and ended up on the front page of the Economy section. The portrait comes in two different versions – the original files are 90 megapixel images available here and here.

If you look closer, the portraits are made exclusive of Apple products: iPhones, iPads, iMacs and MacBooks make every single details of Jobs’ face – yes, even the glasses.

The creative director of the magazine requested a ‘white on white’ portrait where Steve Jobs was to be illustrated with all of Apple’s white products. I created the mosaic but then became curious with what a black version would look like.

These mosaics are made with custom developed scripts, hacks and lots of love, using my Mac, Studio Artist, the Adobe Creative Suite and good music.

More portraits be Tsevis are available here but if you ask me, these are the best ones to date.
