Fortune 500 rejected cover

May 1, 2010

The May issue of Fortune magazine is its annual issue on the Fortune 500 list of the largest U.S. corporations.

This year the magazine commissioned Chicago illustrator and graphic novelist Chris Ware to draw the cover for the special issue, then rejected his submission.

It was a great illustration. While Fortune’s reason for rejecting it was obvious, I hope it is made available as a poster.
