Variety Magazine illustration by Raid71
December 15, 2016
Illustrator Raid71 was commissioned by Variety Magazine to create this portrait of Shane Smith, co-founder and CEO of Vice. The 1/2 page illustration is the visual to the feature on the meteoric rise of the Vice stable.
"Shane Smith's passport is running out of pages to stamp.
The co-founder and CEO of Vice logged plenty of frequent flier miles this year given the rapid international expansion of his company, which currently operates in more than 30 countries but is expected to exceed 80 by 2018. Smith admits the speed at which Vice is criss-crossing the planet exceeded even his own expectations."
