LEGO fans remember Apple-founder Steve Jobs

You’ve undoubtedly heard by now that Steve Jobs passed away a couple of days ago after a long battle with cancer. It’s been all over the news with wall-to-wall coverage, while iCandle vigils have sprung up all over the world. Steve Jobs is being remembered as a pioneer, a technological revolutionary, a visionary. Here I will share with you a few inspirational quotes from Steve Jobs, along with memorial creations by LEGO fans:

R.I.P. Steve Jobs by Joey KWOK

 “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma– which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Steve Jobs by Arthur Gugick - made with printed LEGO tiles (click on the image for larger view)

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. . .  As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. . . So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

"Not Gone, Just in the Cloud" by Contoured

 “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.”

Rest in peace, Steve! You have (i)touched the lives of us all! 😥

    No more with us. Steve Jobs (1955-2011) did lots of things, including the iMac I am writing with.
    I love the first photo. Breathtaking !

    The mosaic is amazing! I have no idea how it was done! how do you design something like that? is there a software or something?

      Yes, the mosaic is amazing! I don’t know of any software that is specifically for printed tiles, so I guess Arthur just have really good eyes for this kind of stuff! 😉
