From movies to operas and comic books to action figures, Steve Jobs has certainly inspired a lot of creativity over the years. One of the most original creations we’ve come across, however, is this portrait created entirely out of e-waste by San Francisco artist Jason Mecier.

Recreating the iconic Albert Watson 2006-era photo of Jobs — originally commissioned by Fortune magazine and memorably used from the cover of Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography — the portrait is currently up for sale.

San Francisco artist Jason Mecier has just unveiled a new portrait of Steve Jobs, composed entirely out of e-waste.

Created using 20lbs of electronic waste — including cell phones, iPods, headphones, Mac keyboards, CD-Rs, batteries, mice, and memory sticks — Mecier’s portrait is a meticulous recreation of the iconic 2006 Albert Watson photo of Jobs originally commissioned by Fortune magazine.

The original image was most famously used for the hardcover jacket of Walter Isaacson’s 2011 Steve Jobs biography.
