Raiders of the Lost Ark for Atari Artwork
 
Anyone know who the artist is that did the video game box art for this? It looks like there is a signature in the art but I can't make it out.

I've been looking through that stuff recently! I love the style and the likeness!
I have a one sheet that was either an insert or advertisement which has another image in the same style.. I'll post them later, in the meantime I'll see if I can make out a signature...:hat:

It almost looks like S. Kelly but I just can't tell and can't get a hit in google with it.

J Kelly, but I can't find anything else on him...

The Artwork was the best thing about that game...on the box that is!

The "Art of Atari" book gives Raiders four pages.

I have that book. It's so good I wish I'd almost grew up in the early 80's!

I found it odd that Indy is wearing his traditional outfit (hat, jacket, etc) when stood behind the Staff of Ra. I guess this is because it reflects the events of the game rather than the film!? That said, is that supposed to be Indy sat down dressed as an Arab?! What brief was this artist exactly given!? If that Arabian character is supposed to be Indy then he appears on the cover 11 times! Seems excessive and why do no other characters get a look-in!

That said, I played the game to completion when it was first released but not before repeatedly screaming at the TV trying to do the parachute bit! Outrageously unforgiving!!!
