Steve Jobs is Willy Wonka. Or something.



You're the head of a highly secretive company.


You're known for being temperamental and very mysterious.


The goods your company produces are highly popular, but they're developed in secret.


When they're introduced, they're invariably accompanied by much anticipation, a media blitz, and fans worldwide salivating over the newest products.


Who are you?

(The lower image is one I saw on CNET, taken during the Macworld keynote. Immediately it reminded me of the Wonkavision scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which led to this silliness.)

    how did you do the edges like that in photoshop? I'm interested in the technique. If you have the time to email me with the tutorial or any tips, feel free!

    Good sir rickvug, the edges on this picture make use of grungy brushes in Photoshop as the eraser. You can download comparable brushes at the Adobe Studio Exchange (; look for grunge borders and dirty effects. For a similar effect, look to Mr. Retro's Machine Wash (

    Gustave beat me to it, but yeah, it's simply a series of brushes. The particular ones I'm using I got from this page, there's probably many more out there (like the ones Gustave pointed to). Download, install, and have fun! :)
