This week's TIME Magazine cover

Find us on...

This week, we’re bringing you the very first of our new annual Money Issue. Its cover was rendered by artist Brock Davis who shared the story behind his work. (Find more of Davis’ work on Tumblr.) 

"Art for an article about the great division in spending between the upper and middle class by Jeffrey Sachs," he said. “I wasn’t sure if TIME would like the idea of the cover appearing as if it has been slashed in half, as it basically rips through the identity. But thankfully they loved it. The stack of money is copy paper that I cut. I colored the paper using my son’s sidewalk chalk. I ground up the green, yellow and white chalk and made a powder until the hue was correct. Then I dusted the powder over the paper with my wife’s blush brush.”

A TIME cover created with recession-friendly resourcefulness? It just seems so appropriate.
