As President Joseph Biden closes in on his first year in office, the Jan. 31, 2022, TIME cover returns to a familiar setting—a gloomy Oval Office.

Artist Tim O’Brien christened Biden’s administration with “Day One,” a Feb. 1, 2021, cover depicting the cluttered mess he was facing upon entering office.

His latest, “Year One,” depicts the president facing a growing storm with COVID-19 tests stacked up in the corner and issues like inflation, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s maneuvering, domestic policy, and the prospect of the return of Donald Trump to the national stage, adding to the gloomy forecast.
