Crash Test

I found these early ideas I had for J.G. Ballard's CRASH on a bunch of SyQuest 44 MB cartridges.

Sketches by Stanley Martucci of Griesbach / Martucci

The first one was to depict crash test dummies in Kama Sutra poses. I wanted to illustrate a chart of multiple positions but Sales thought that this would never fly in Wal-Mart so I never got beyond this sketch stage. Hmm, when was the last time you saw J.G. Ballard's sold in Wal-Mart?

A sketch I did while waiting to get an idea.

J. G Ballard dies age 78 // April 18, 2009.

The crash test dummies is priceless. That MUST be published some day. But your final cover was nice too. The concept is brilliant. Great sketch.
