Street Racing: Sketches

After a bit of thought, I have came up with some sketches that can be suited for the topic as metaphoric visuals.

The first sketch shows a driver signing a contract to the Grim Reaper. The Grim Reaper is known as the spirit of death. This symbolizes when one race on the streets, they put their lives on the line. Metaphorically, the  person is promising his life to the Grim Reaper or death.

This is also similar to the first sketch. But this time, the grim reaper is in the passenger seat. This symbolizes when one's adrenaline is pumping, he will start making foolish decisions that can cost one's life.
This sketch is a bit different on idea. Basically this shows a wheelchair with a bucket seat and harnesses. Bucket seats is a strong resemblance of racing as it is a standard safety requirement in all race cars. The image of a wheelchair resembles the lifetime injuries caused by street racing.
 This sketch is a bit similar to the previous one yet this conveys a stronger message since it emphasizes on death instead of injury. With the bucket seat as the tomb stone, one can have agood guess of what the deceased died from.

In my opinion, the last sketch would be the best since the elements are very familiar yet it conveys a strong message loud and clear. This is basically just a mock up of the metaphoric design. With the bucket seat as the tomb stone and the dirt to resemble a grave.
