Artist Bio: 

In 2011, Indi Martin became a founding member of Tortoise & Hare Creations, into which she could pour her creative heartblood and - through alchemical equations and dark, rum-based magic - produce stunning projects. Indi is best known for penning the Gina Harwood novels, a series often described as X-Files meets Call of Cthulhu, as well as Dissolution: A Graphic Novel, a mature-content, experimental graphic serial. Indi has supplied paintings for multiple roleplaying supplements, including the Veranthea CodexMists of Akuma, and Hypercorps 2099: Wasteland, as well as several video games including The Dark Unknown and Sylph: Project Miyaji. She also has completed several pieces for bands including Baron von Swagger, Sovereign Dame, and most recently the vinyl cover for RECAP's Pronoia.  Additionally, she offers her original and fan art prints as well as commissions online and at conventions. Check out her online gallery at
