Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has continued to inflame audiences with controversial remarks this week -- first, with his Second Amendment comment about his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton (which inspired this ad), and more recently, calling President Barack Obama the "founder of ISIS." Blunders such as these are among the factors bringing great turmoil in the Republican party itself, as documented in Time Magazine's cover story this week, "Inside Donald Trump's Meltdown," encapsulated powerfully in this striking cover image.

The illustration is simple and succinct, capturing the billionaire's face oozing down like a lit candle, with the spare cover line: "Meltdown."

It was created by Edel Rodriguez, a Cuban-born artist known for taking on tough topics such as gun control, racial relations in the U.S. and gender equality. He's conceived covers for Billboard, The New Yorker and Newsweek, including controversial imagery for the latter's cover story on women in Silicon Valley.
