monday. they didn't go with my ideas but they wanted to use kind of the style that i use a lot which is the type graphic portraits that you see and they wanted to sort of fill in. they were key on having the word enough there to reflect something they've used in a previous type cover with the parkland students. and so i went back to that cover and used the same typography basically as negative space, put the major pieces in and kind of filled in around and that took the better part of two and a half days. >> did it surprise you at all you had so many cities to put on the page. >> yeah. at first, i thought the it might be like just the big events over the last five or ten years. but when they said it was just going to be 2019, i envisioned something reasonable. then they send me the list and i see approximately 250. it became 253 at the end and it's kind of stunning.
i'm going through at first trying to fill everything in in different areas. and then you have to take a step back and pause because like i hit san jose, i'm a san jose kid. and you step back and realize you siva lay ho, richmond, oakland, you see san francisco. you see cities that are in red states, cities in blue states. you see major cities, small cities and filled it completely and you realize behind every name is a story and people and friends and family who are all affected. i think in a lot of ways this was hopefully a message to put everything together and show the totality of how bad it is. so you could take a look and see the cover and see some of the big names but then the inclination is to kind of look for your town or your city and see where it is. >> are you doing this by hand or software program. >> yeah, i use an ipad and i use an apple pencil and i hand draw
in all the names using that. so it's a lot of working around it, drawing in, taking out, seeing what fits where best. i described the process kind of like a jigsaw puzzle talking about the christine blasey ford cover. this is sort of the same thing. you're trying to fit things together so they have a look you're pleases with at the end that tells a story. >> you came in right after christine bylachris blasey forward that situation became headline news. what feedback did you get from that when everybody saw is on "time." >> you mean this time. >> no. >> it was remarkable. i wasn't ready for it. the people at "time" are aware how big of an impact their covers have. i thought i knew what viral was but my twitter mentions went from 40 to 4,000 in a day. i got like the same impact here if not even more on this one. it touches a lot of people.
>> the hope would be that art can send a message. >> right. yeah, because we have an event, we're traumatized by it. we try to cope. we -- another event happens about some other news cycle and we kind of grow numb to it. this is a way to compile all of it and really grasp at the enormity of what's happening in this country. hopefully, something will be done via our leads people who claim to be our leaders that have done nothing about this problem for so long. >> thanks for coming in again. i hope you never have the opportunity or the need to put together another cover like this. thanks again for your time. >> i hope so, too. >> john mavroudis. >> still ahead, a study about your feline friends, especially when they give plheayig know very t.m mt. tam on a
