It is hard to believe that 15 years ago in October 1996 Tomb Raider first graced our home consoles. The iconic heroine has seen many redesigns over the year, and most recently Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics are rebooting the franchise with next year’s release of Tomb Raider. But that is then, and since October marks the anniversary, Crystal Dynamics is beginning a digital art exhibition where they are commissioning eight pieces of art to be created by professional artist and released twice a week during the month of October.
Fans can find the art pieces on the website here, where they can find the first piece created by Andy Park which you can see below. Besides these digital pieces of art, October 14th will also be the date that artists will be available to sign things at the New York Comic Con. Also a limited amount of T-shirts and posters featuring Tomb raider art will be available for purchase at The Nerd Machine where an undisclosed amount of proceeds will go to benefit the Child’s Play charity.
