For the Oct. 15, 2018, TIME cover on the impact of Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony and the significance of her voice, Time used Ford’s words to create her portrait.

Using words and phrases from Ford’s testimony, San Francisco-based artist John Mavroudis recreated her likeness by drawing each letter by hand.

“This particular process is like putting a jigsaw puzzle together, but with an infinite number of possibilities,” says Mavroudis. “I started with an image of Ford and then drew the words in where they might be appropriate.”

“The memory quotes would be attached to her forehead area, and the quotes about wanting to help I placed on her hand. The hand could be seen as welcoming, but also deflecting,” Mavroudis said. “It’s a fascinating process to watch the face take shape, while hoping that you’ve captured the essence.”
