Artist Bio: 

Hello! I'm Indi Martin, artist, author and owner of Tortoise & Hare Creations. In the art sphere, I illustrate comics (most recently the Shroud of the Avatar: New Beginnings comic miniseries), create art with pencils, inks, watercolors, acrylics, digital and any other medium that pops to mind by commission and for personal expression. Much of my client work is for D&D5E and Pathfinder materials, but I have also provided artwork for several tabletop games, a handful of video games and covers, and album covers. I'm freelance, though, so you (and I!) never know what'll pop up in a project! My home style is fantasy realism, but I also enjoy doing hardline (woodcut-style) black and white illustrations and playing around with different styles and mediums. Patreon: www.patreon.com/tortoiseharecreations

Indi, I am Kevin's father.  I need cover art for my latest novel.  Antebellum south.  Plantations, Charleston, New Orleans, figures of men and women. If you are interested, please get my email address from Kevin and reach out to me.  Sorry, but I did not wish to post that address on a public forum.  Thanks, Tom
