April Patron Hangout, Relics By Rild & Update


Check out our April patron hangout - patrons are welcome to join the call and hang out for rabbles after the public update portion is complete. :)

I did want to call out one important item - Tortoise & Hare Creations will be retreating to our secret mountain lair starting this weekend (after Creator Con today!) and remaining there - painting, making pigments from flowers, hunting mushrooms, and shooting a video and many, many pictures - until May 4th.

The Etsy store is on vacation, but while you'll have to wait for prints and such, the Shroud of the Avatar: New Beginnings comic can still be purchased around the web. In fact, you have a brand new option for unsigned copies in case you've struggled with the IndyPlanet site - Relics By Rild carries copies as well! Check the site out, and pick up some other excellent Shroud of the Avatar merchandise while you're there!

Now, the mountains are calling, and we must go.

April Showers & Growers

Alright, LOTS of things currently happening, so skipping right to the bullet list.

  • Shroud of the Avatar: New Beginnings is NOW AVAILABLE to everyone! Head to IndyPlanet to pick up your unsigned print and/or digital copies, or we have signed copies available on our Etsy store ! Check out Portalarium's feature on us HERE! :D **UPDATE** We are currently sold out of the signed comics on our Etsy store - we have more on order, so once they arrive, we sign 'em and bag and board 'em, we'll renew the listing. Apologies for the delay!***
  • Completed the first of four geocaching-themed pinups, "Autumn." Available for purchase at our Etsy store
  • Next piece for the Dark Unknown Bestiary Project is done - meet the Ettin: 
  • The GeoPunk broadcast is BACK! What is GeoPunk, I hear you ask? Listen and find out! If you enjoy geocaching, olde tyme radio(e) programmes, and general badassery, then definitely give it a shot. 
  • Thank you to our Patreon Supporters, who just pushed us over our first monthly milestone! Join up today! 
  • GoCache Expansion! We will have a limited expansion of 6 Maryland-specific cards to celebrate this year's Maryland GeoWoodstock, they are done and in our hot little hands and ready to sell. They'll debut at GeoWoodstock, and we'll have a small number of them that we can sell online as well, for the collectors out there! (Not sure what GoCache is? Click here! Want to pick up a copy? Click here!) Here's the first of a few we'll share before GW: 
  • Upcoming Convention Appearances:
  • Reminder! May is MUSHROOM MONTH! Keep an eye on this space for lots of Morel & morel (the heroine and the fungus) information. :)

That's it! We'll be setting up our Patreon hangout in the next week or so, it's likely to be a mid-week hangout this time.

Spring has Sprung!

It's April, and we at THC are ecstatic to finally be able to venture back outside without fifty layers on. And this bright light in the sky - what is that? It's so warm!

Other than today, of course, because it decided to rain.

Here's a few bits and pieces we're working on currently!


  • New Print! Tyrion Lannister, available in 11x17 at our Etsy store
  • New Dark Unknown Bestiary piece! Giant Spider
  • All of the GoCache expansion cards for GeoWoodstock are DONE! We'll share one or two as GW inches closer, but you can check out a preview of one of them at our patron feed: www.patreon.com/tortoiseharecreations (must be a patron to view)
  • May is MUSHROOM MONTH! Join us as we share a bunch of Morel-related items for the best gathering month of the year. 
  • Into Dreams, the third Gina Harwood novel is in the hands of the beta-readers, and following a final editing pass, will be finished. I'll have a release date for you in the next update, I think!

We have several more convention appearances on the horizon as well, come out and say hello if you're in the area!
