This week's TIME Magazine cover

For this week’s education story, ‘Reinventing College,’ writer Amanda Ripley literally went back to school. Our assignment for the cover was to evoke a classroom feel while highlighting the breadth of our special report. We turned to chalkboard artist Dana Tanamachi, who spent two days crafting the artwork for us.

In Dana’s words:

“I created this piece using a 4x4-ft. portable chalkboard, which I made by painting a smooth piece of plywood with chalkboard paint. Typically I create editorial pieces in my studio in Brooklyn on a large chalk wall and then have them photographed. But I was just about to leave for a two-week trip to Texas and California, so I created a homemade chalkboard and worked out of a friend’s space in Dallas. Then I transported it over to the Foundry Collective studio to have the piece photographed by my friend Paul Wilkes.”
