Julia Harrison is creating The Oracle Fragment
41
patrons
$65
per month


I’m a professional illustrator and concept artist who specializes in science fiction and fantasy. I'm also a writer! With that killer combo, I plan on telling kickass stories for you all.

I hope my work inspires you to look at the stars, imagine what incredible adventures await us out there... and explore your own.


The Oracle Fragment is a science fiction thriller slated to become a graphic novel series, likely a series of novels, and a set of audio dramas (the last by me and my husband Joe Harrison). On a desolate planet 9,000 years in the future, an archaeological team uncovers an ancient city with a dark secret. Soon Amalia Ajoran, the youngest member of the team, is fighting not only for her life, but for the lives of her friends and mentors.

I've been developing this story for over ten years. In 2015, I teamed up with the Orion's Arm Universe Project to make their shared universe the setting of the story. Now I'm ready to take things to a whole new level, and that's what this Patreon is all about.

For a more detailed explanation of the project, check out the "Introduction to TOF" series here.


Though I'm incredibly enthusiastic about this project, I can't make it a reality without significant help. I'm just one person, with limited time, resources, and energy. By joining my community here on Patreon, you can help me achieve the following goals:

  • Devote more time to the project. As much as I'd like to do nothing but work on TOF, I've got bills to pay. That means side jobs, day jobs, and other non-TOF projects eat up most of my time. If enough people contribute to this Patreon, I could trim back other commitments and eventually (maybe!) go full time.
  • Hire other artists to work with me. There's simply too much design work for me to tackle alone. If I can source the funds, I'll seek out other professionals to help me design creatures, environments, technology, and everything else this story needs.
  • When the time comes... publish! (Or produce?) I'm still figuring out which media to use to tell this story (graphic novels, animation, film, live action series, etc). Any of these options will take tremendous resources! With your help, I look forward to creating opportunities for making The Oracle Fragment happen.

It'll be a long road, and no matter what, I'm committed to seeing it through.

In joining my Patreon, you're getting a backstage pass to the development of a professional-quality science fiction story. Depending on your level of contribution, you'll see more and more of the writing and design that goes on behind the scenes.

At the beginning of each month, I'll announce a theme for that month: a character, a setting, a concept, etc. Livestreams, wallpapers, and written scenes will reflect the month's theme.

Rewards are a work in progress, so expect them to come and go. Whatever happens though, my end goal is to create great, engaging content for you all.


Without you, this page wouldn't exist, and The Oracle Fragment wouldn't happen!

I hope you find the journey as exciting and rewarding as I do!

Tiers
The Scout
$1 or more per month

You've noticed a strange signal coming from a distant star system, and you've decided to investigate. But beware - the signal could be anything.


At this level, you'll have access to the following rewards:


  • my undying gratitude!
  • progress shots and updates
The Watcher
$5 or more per month

The signal's led you to a desolate planet dotted with ancient ruins. You should probably stay in orbit for a while and observe. It's not wise to rush into an environment you know nothing about.


At this level, you'll have access to the following rewards:


  • progress shots and updates
  • a new high-res wallpaper each month. Professional quality sci-fi art for your desktop, in a variety of resolutions. Wallpaper content will reflect the month's theme. 
The Archaeologist
$10 or more per month

You've taken the leap and gone down to one of the ancient ruins. You're even digging in the dirt now. Exciting...but dangerous. If something terrible happens, don't say I didn't warn you.


At this level, you'll have access to the following rewards:


  • rewards from all previous tiers
  • high-res PSD drops - so you can get a really good look at my work :)
  • monthly private livestreams where I discuss the characters, designs, ideas, and worlds of The Oracle Fragment. I won't do this on any other platform, and I won't release these streams publicly. Come get the scoop on all things TOF! Each livestream will focus on the theme of the month. 
The Linguist
$20 or more per month

You've found some strange writings in your excavations, and no one on the team can read them but you. Be careful - in this case, ignorance may very well be bliss.


At this level, you'll have access to the following rewards:


  • rewards from all previous tiers 
  • written scenes from the story as they develop. I already have a backlog of scenes to share, and I'm always, always writing more. These include character studies and one-shots that won't necessarily make it into the final story. Written material will reflect the theme of the month.
The Data Analyst
$50 or more per month

You're hungry for information, and you're the best at understanding what it means. The others rely on you to make sense of it all. What will you tell them?


At this level, you'll have access to the following rewards:


  • rewards from all previous tiers
  • galleries of character art, illustrations, sketches, and past wallpapers. All the art I've done for the project in one convenient place. This includes art I've never shown!
  • access to story and design notes. I have a whole "Story Bible" for my notes, and I'm always adding to it. At this tier, you can check it out for yourself!
The Curator
$100 or more per month only 8 left

You have access to it all. The linguist's translations, the data analyst's discoveries, and more besides. Now you have to decide what, and how, to tell the galaxy about this place. Do you guard its secrets? Or do you warn the galaxy of its dangers?


At this level, you'll have access to the following rewards:


  • rewards from all previous tiers 
  • a monthly voice/video call where we discuss the project. Do you wish you could just sit down with me over coffee and talk about all things TOF? Well, this is the tier for you! Each month I'll send you a link to a group voice/video call where you can do just that. Ask me questions, give me feedback, and discuss your favorite ideas! Limited to 8 people only.
Goals
$65 of $200 per month
At this amount, I will release 2-3 small sketches a month, or 1 more complicated sketch.
