Mourning the late Apple cop-founder Steve Jobs, Hong Kong design student Jonathan Mak, 18, created the above art and posted it online. It swept the globe — churning globally online even this writing. It in fact is arresting. Look closely. The minimalist artist hid two symbolic images. Can you see them? According to Reuters, actor Ashton Kutcher can.
He’s using Mak’s image as his profile image on Twitter. T-shirts, hats and other merchandise are due out with Mak’s graphical depiction of Jobs presence, ousting and, now, permanent absence from Apple. Poignant.

The Apple Pie, above, was a hit image on Google+ the moment Mike Elgan, in my circles, published it publicly. Given that Wozniak told me he and Jobs first assembled the Apple I boards in the kitchen — not the garage — of Jobs’ parents’ Mountainview, CA home, I thought it was fitting. Nice job, Mike.

Grieving Jobs employees and customers have been contributing art like this to memorials to Jobs spring up all over the country. There are dozens in San Francisco and Silicon Valley alone. Here is one of my favorite images.

Created by designer Charis Tsevis, this mosaic piece combines images of Jobs-led Apple computers and mobile devices. It’s so Dali.

This designer took the stock Apple image of Steve Jobs after he died Wednesday, October 6, 2011, and melds it with a LiteBrite effect and Apple logo. Excellent.

Here’s a beautiful shot of a Memorial fans put together outside of Steve Jobs’ Palo Alto, CA home on October 6th, 2011
Jobs, famous for saying his goal was travel the line where art and technology meet, would’ve smiled at this artistic outpouring. This I know for sure. Do you have an image you’ve seen online we should include here?
