Psychedelic Steve Jobs (collage portrait for ALFA magazine, Brazil)

    Newer Older

    ALFA is a Brazilian men magazine published by Editora Abril. They asked me for a Steve Jobs portrait slightly different from my previous ones. They wanted the psychedelic, the hippie, the younger Steve. Their article is talking about the his trips in India and in LSD as well as the first days of Apple. I decided to take a collage approach to the illustration using very old and probably kitsch Apple II advertisments from the late 70s and early 80s. I have based my whole portrait on the historic photo of Steve with the Apple but of course I wanted to put more color and more dynamics to it.
