Time magazine commissioned an artful portrait of Christine Blasey Ford for the cover story of its latest issue.
The cover, unveiled Thursday, shows Ford being sworn in before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.
The California psychologist told the committee that the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a party when they were in high school in the 1980s. Kavanaugh vigorously denied her account.
A San Francisco-based artist named John Mavroudis created the portrait of Ford using the words from her testimony, drawing each letter by hand.
“This particular process is like putting a jigsaw puzzle together, but with an infinite number of possibilities,” Mavroudis told Time in article about the cover.
“I started with an image of Ford and then drew the words in where they might be appropriate,” he said.
“The memory quotes would be attached to her forehead area, and the quotes about wanting to help I placed on her hand,” he added. “The hand could be seen as welcoming, but also deflecting.”
He continued: “It’s a fascinating process to watch the face take shape, while hoping that you’ve captured the essence.”
