New artwork for the 25th Anniversary created by Andy Park
This month of celebration is dedicated to Tomb Raider The Last Revelation and the guest artist to illustrate Lara Croft is Andy Park, who is loved by all fans because he was the original artist of the first series of comics based on the character of Lara Croft.
Andy is known across entertainment industries. He was the primary artist on our very on Tomb Raider comics published by Top Cow Productions in 1999, before working on the God of War franchise as a concept artist at Sony Santa Monica Studio. In 2010 Andy joined the Marvel Studios family, where he now works as their Visual Development Supervisor. His most recent work includes concepting Wandavision’s stunning Scarlet Witch outfit.
“Throughout my 25+ year career I’ve had the chance to illustrate Lara Croft from her comic book debut series from Top Cow Productions in the early 2000s, to covers for her subsequent comic book series at Dark Horse Comics, to several illustrations done for the past several rebooted Tomb Raider video game series from Crystal Dynamics. So getting to do a tribute piece for one of the original classic games in Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation was nothing but pure pleasure and an honor. For this piece I wanted to make it as iconic as possible. Even though she wielded a flashlight in the original box art I had to depict her with her classic double silver Colt M1911s as she prepares to encounter her skeletal adversaries deep within an Egyptian temple. Her costume is essentially the one I drew during my days drawing the Tomb Raider comic book series so this one brought back a ton of memories that will last me a lifetime. I never get tired of illustrating this icon. It’s like visiting an old friend throughout the years! I can’t wait to see what the future holds…” -Andy Park
