Tribute: Pointillistic Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

Ben Heine, the artist behind the Pencil vs. Camera project, has yet another tricks up his sleeve. This time, Heine offers a modern take on pointillism, the technique popularized by Georges Seurat in "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte."
This portrait is only made with "flat circles" on a black background. Every circle has a single color, a single tone and a single size. I placed each circle one by one. It's a time consuming method. Please see some details, the work in progress and other portraits here below. If you wish, you can also view this making of my portrait of Elvis Presley (video) to understand how I'm exploiting this technique with circles. The above portrait was featured on "Cult Of Mac" in March 2012.
