Square Enix Art Auction to Benefit Child’s Play Charity
Hello all! Time for some really exciting news! Over the past few months we’ve been organizing a Square Enix art auction to benefit a fantastic cause - Child’s Play Charity.
Established in 2003, Child’s Play is a game industry charity focused on improving hospital stays for youth through the donation of toys and games. Aided by the gaming industry and community, the initiative has raised millions of dollars to benefit their network of worldwide hospitals.
Square Enix is lending its support through an art auction coinciding with New York Comic Con. Key pieces of art have been gathered from AAA Square Enix franchises, including selections from Sleeping Dogs, Deus Ex, Hitman, and of course Tomb Raider! Contributions include fan works, signed lithographs, and original, hand-drawn art by project leads. The auctions will run through Saturday, October 13, with all proceeds going to Child’s Play.
Visit the Child’s Play eBay store (supported through eBay Giving Works) to bid.
Tomb Raider Specifics
As for what Tomb Raider is offering, the first is an original illustration with acrylics by prolific Tomb Raider fan artist Priscillia Thomas. Next up is an original ink drawing by Tomb Raider Senior Art Director Brian Horton, and the third piece is an autographed digital print by TR concept artist Brenoch Adams.
I would really appreciate a reblog for a good cause. Let’s give these pieces of art a great home, and provide some entertainment for children in need! If you’d like to share elsewhere, THIS is the important link to pass along. Thank you!
