People worldwide have expressed their sorrow over the passing of Steve Jobs, and this week’s robot adds my voice to the masses. Without Apple computers I don’t know if my career would be the same as it is today. Apple products have inspired me and countless others to build, create, and design any type creative expression. Anytime I would tell people that I was a designer or an illustrator they always say, “oh so you must use a Mac.” Apple is synonymous with creativity, and this of course is due to the vision that Steve Jobs has had for this company.
Many Steve Jobs quotes have come out in the past few days, notably from his 2005 Stanford commencement speech. My favorite and one I intend to remember is, “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.“
We all have lost someone who gave us so much.
