Few posthumous tributes are as cute as the 'Hello Stevie' created by Sanrio and California retailer LoungeFly. The iconic feline character had a nerdy makeover in order to honor the life and work of Apple's CEO Steve Jobs.

Dressed up in Jobs' famous attire -- blue jeans and black turtleneck -- and wearing his trademark round eyeglasses, Hello Kitty appears holding an iPad in its right hand and on the left side, there is a date and a message that reads either "Steve, Thank you for a lifetime of creativity," or "Steve Jobs, 1955-2011."

Hello Stevie is a fun and fascinating way to remind the world of the power and vision of one of the most inspiring modern geniuses. Stats for CEO Cat Cartoons Trending: Older & Chilly
