STEVE JOBS - As the family, friends, and Apple geniuses continue to mourn the passing of America's beloved Steve Jobs, there is a cultural phenomenon reshaping the art world.

In his passing, Apple CEO Tim Cook decided to post a picture of Steve Jobs posing on the front page of Apple's website to pay homage to Jobs' greatness. And the greatness is defined in different layers. The picture is a black and white depiction of a Steve Jobs contemplating and imagining the world after today.

Business analysts think it's a portrait that embodies all of what Steve has done for Apple and the world, Information Technology industries see it as a beacon of light, and Art historians call it the Mona Lisa replacement. What Jobs is to Mona Lisa, Apple is to Blackberry explained the security guard of the Apple store headquarters in Manhattan.

It seemed silly at first to believe the hype but after looking closer at the portrait something strange began to happen, something Mona Lisa-esque. The eyes of Steve Jobs in the portrait began to look back at people and follow them in a spook.

Some people brush it off as superstition or others a grieving process. But screenwriters, producers, and Youtube amateurs have other ideas. One person interviewed said they hope that posters and T-shirts will be made available for the public as soon as possible.

"Hopefully the T-shirts and posters can allow us to customize Steve Jobs by perhaps using different color eyes for him and using his voice in our voicemail automated message. In fact, I would like my ringtone to be Jobs' nastiest thing he has ever told someone in a shouting manner," described one dreamer probably stoned out their mind.

Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey is considering establishing a Steve Jobs holiday for the state and an avenue name to replace Jersey Shore Boulevard.
