The John Doerr Dollar

John Doerr is probably the most known veture capitalist in Silicon Valley. Partner in KPCB, helped raising companies like Google, Netscape, Amazon, Verisign and innumerous others. Forbes magazine named him once "the Medas of the Silicon Valley" and Jeff Bezos described him as "the center of gravity of the Internet".

Recently he rocked the digital world introducing the iFund to help starting companies that will develop software for the Apple iPhone platform. But John is not only an entrepreneur. He is also very political active and well known for his passion for EcoTech.


I wrote an article about him, his life and his ideas in the best selling computer magazine in Greece, RAM. The article has the following title:

John Doerr: The color of money is Green. This is the illustration we did or that article.

Made with Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.


Best viewed large or printed.

Credit must go also to the many photographs I found in Flickr and use them as a basis for the initial caricature - portrait.
