Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has endured public criticism, and even public attacks
(albeit with groceries), but an aspiring portrait artist has decided to honor the beleaguered executive with a mosaic. The only drawback is that the portrait is composed entirely of images
that feature the dreaded Blue-Screen-of-Death (BSOD). For non-Windows users, the BSOD refers to the screen which appears on a monitor after the computer experiences a deathly crash.
The mosaic, rendered by a craftsman at Poorly Drawn Portraits
, captures a defiant, tongue-wagging Ballmer
by using thousands of digital tesserae that depict crashed Windows computers. This isn't the first time someone has artistically redefined the traumatic computer occurrence
, but this particular creation actually possesses artistic merit.
The BSOD actually now poses a dwindling threat with the death of XP.
But, thanks to recent security updates, an entirely new and inspiring Black-Screen-of-Death has appeared in order to serve as a replacement muse.
