Thanks, Steve.

Quick tribute sketch of Steve Jobs, in his youth, who we all know passed away yesterday due to an ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 56.

Probably because of the solitary nature of being a cartoonist, I always liked the idea of Jobs toiling away in his garage into the late hours of the night, hunched over a bulky hand-made device that will not only serve to change the world, but solitariness as well.

The above quote comes from a commencement speech Steve Jobs delivered to Stanford University on June 12, 2005.

    Nothing coherent to say, just “I love it”.

      Amazing. Really does remind my of a cartoonist as well. Thanks for creating this tribute image.

        It’s great you took the time to do this. It turned out wonderfully. I watched the speech you mentioned today for the first time and the quote you picked was a highlight for sure.

          Great tribute! The way Steve saw the world was unique and simply different. It´s reason enough to be solitary. You hit the spot, Mike! Thanks.
