I spent several hours going through all the artistic tributes, handwritten notes, candle vigils, stunning Photoshop creations, iPad and iPhone drawings, sticky-note collages, creative photographs, etc… and I’ve chosen my favorite 50 to share with you today. They each have a special feeling about them, but the one thing they have in common is that they are all beautiful tributes to Steve. Thank you to all these artists for sharing their inspiration and creativity with the world. All of the image credits are at the bottom of this article. Steve, you will never be forgotten. Thank you for making technology feel like a fun adventure!
