UPDATE: With thanks to reader James of RetroMacCast, credit is due to the original creator of this and many other wonderful mosaix-technique portraits, Athens, Greece-based artist, Charis Tsevis. You can download and listen to a podcast interview with Tsevis here.

Flickr user mic.imac has a fascinating portrait up of Steve Jobs, comprised entirely of artfully arranged Apple products. The portrait echoes a theme that runs through the upcoming Welcome to Macintosh documentary my colleague Nicole Martinelli wrote about on Monday, which is that the people who work at Apple give themselves entirely to the work of designing and producing the products the company makes.

Of no one is that statement more true than Steve Jobs. As CoM founder Leander Kahney says in the documentary, “Apple is Steve Jobs.”

    Please give credit to the original artist of this masterpiece: Charis Tsevis. All of his work may be found on his Flickr page under the username: tsevis.

    We interviewed him shortly after his Steve Jobs art was published by Newsweek. You can listen to the interview here on Episode 62 of the RetroMacCast:

    Hi all!
    I am thanking you for the kind words.
    If I have to reciprocate I would say that it’s one lifetime’s dream to reach Wired and Cult of Mac. I am a fan for years.
    All the best
