A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to produce a new piece of art to be used in a series of prints to accompany the release of the new Tomb Raider game (which just came out this week).
Obviously I said yes because otherwise this would be a pretty meaningless blog post, and also: it’s Tomb Raider. Whatever you might think of the later games, if you’re my age (early thirties since you ask), you probably played the first games - and the overwhelming memory of making lara swan dive into pools/caves/etc informed my illustration.
You can find this print on sale at two pop up shops that are happening in NY & SF this weekend alongside pieces by a REALLY great roster of artists - Victo Ngai, Kyle Smart and Sam Wolfe Connelly amongst others.
