Another Memorable Magazine Cover Illustration by Edel Rodriguez

The Aug. 22 issue of Time.

Remember the Feb. 2, 2015 Newsweek cover that depicted a cursor lifting up the skirt of a female officer worker figure, with the cover line ‘What Silicon Valley Thinks of Women’? The artist responsible for that much-discussed drawing and many other notable covers, Edel Rodriguez, is back on newsstands this week with his latest one for Time.


We’ve been here umpteen times before: the media predicting the end of Trump, with Trump then continuing his improbable political march. There’s no doubt this past week will be the biggest challenge yet to the elasticity of that equation. Hillary Clinton made a somewhat similar remark in 2008 to the one Trump is being pilloried for this week, involving then-Senator Obama and Robert Kennedy. However, Twitter was in its infancy back then and Fox News was still cementing its gargantuan power.

Rodriguez, a native of Havana, has also illustrated several children’s books and created a 2005 USPS stamp. Many years ago, he was an international art director for Time magazine and since then, has been commissioned by the publication for various covers. His most recent, previous one can be viewed here.
