Portrait of Steve Jobs

Indian Ink on paper... RIP Steve Jobs

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life,"

"Because almost everything —all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important."

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."


  1. Nice touch with the glasses!

  2. Awesome portrait and what a creative way to link Steve and Apple with his glasses ^^

  3. Very creative sketch! Nice values. I saw that speech some time ago - it's on NED online. What an amazing motivational speech.

  4. Well done. Also,the quotes that you chose are so thoughtful.

  5. Not sure what happened to the comment I just finished typing in...maybe it went to you, but I got a strange message about not having 'permission' to view this page? Hmmm...I'll try again.

    Wonderful idea on the glasses! (and wonderful portrait) I also did one in my sketchbook journal (didn't post it) but it is ordinary. Wish I had thought of that!
