Chris Ware, American artist, was commissioned to do the cover for the Fortune 500 issue. Sadly, it was rejected.
Copy + Paste from Indiepulp:
He accepted the job because it would be like doing the 1929 issue of the magazine, and he filled the image with tons of satirical imagery, like the U.S. [Treasury] being raided by Wall Street, China dumping money into the ocean, homes being flooded, homes being foreclosed, and CEOs dancing a jig while society devolves into chaos.
It’s too bad that the folks at Fortune don’t have a sense of humor.
