Illustrating first Slovak billionaire

See how Jan Sramek captured portrait of Ivan Chrenko

At the end of the year, Forbes usually creates a list of the richest people in the country. Also Slovak edition of Forbes was preparing an article about the wealthiest people. To the top of the list made it Ivan Chrenko from the real estate developer company HB Reavis. A chief editor of Forbes magazine asked us to illustrate a portrait of Ivan Chrenko for the magazine cover.

We suggested our illustrator Jan Sramek, who can capture features of the face very well. Chief editor agreed and Jan started to work. The magazine was published in January and it was pretty smooth process. Ivan Chrenko even became a first Slovak in the list of world’s billionaires, what a surprise.  And the magazine cover with Jan’s illustration rotated in TV news and all over the internet.
