Lora Merriman is creating The Otherknown
25

patrons

$79
per month

What would you do if you were accidentally sent two years back in time?


Hi, I'm Lora, and I've been putting comics online (in some capacity or another) for about half of my life now! My current project is The Otherknown, a science-fiction story of found family, friendship, and intrigue, which follows multiple groups of characters and their paths as they intertwine throughout space and time. Also recommended for fans of robots telling bad jokes!

As my patron, you're going to get looks into my creative process via:

  • ($1+) Streams for patrons, where I work on new pages and art!
  • ($1+) My professional blog, going into more detail about upcoming projects than social media
  • ($1+) Otherknown sketchbooks! (pdf)
  • ($3+) Early updates!
  • ($3+) Concept art and behind-the-scenes glimpses at my scriptwriting process
  • ($3+) Bonus lore, case you're into that
  • ($5+) Bonus comics never before seen by human or beast
  • ($5+) Detailed breakdowns of my process behind specific pages (analyzing things like color choice and panel layout)
  • Other such sundry goodies

My ultimate goal would be to be able to put out more pages per week, but every little bit helps me grow and develop the comic, and other projects (which will soon be cataloged here)!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tiers
A PATRON IS YOU
$1 or more per month 12 patrons
"Do patrons dream of electric Sweeps?"

Thank you SO much! This tier also nets you:
  • Access to private patron livestreams when I do them! Watch me work on upcoming pages! Chat about birds maybe - it's up to you
  • The basic patron blog! Announcements and sneak peeks in more detail than on social media!
  • Otherknown sketchbooks! periodic (roughly monthly) pdf sketchbooks of bonus doodles
OO, BONUS CONTENT
$3 or more per month 7 patrons
"I've hacked into the mainframe!"

Heck yeah, look at all these .jpgs in here!! This must be where all that meaty bonus content resides!


All of the above, and:

  • Early updates - days before they go public!
  • Concept art and development work!
  • Story notes and lore snippets! An in-depth look at the underlying details of the comic's universe, as well as my personal writing process!
  • Sneak peeks of other projects before they become public! I have lots of other personal projects in the works, such as another comic born of a cartoon pitch I developed, as well as a spooky visual novel! I want to share them with YOU first!
THE CURIOUS CONNOISSEUR
$5 or more per month 2 patrons
"did u draw that"

all of the above, and:
  • Page breakdowns. I deconstruct individual pages (usually my favorite of the month) in a post that includes a process gif of its creation! This includes the thought processes that went into every stage of its development, as well as the technical details.
  • eventually: secret bonus comics. I have several backstory snippets for various characters that may be developed as stand-alone side stories! At least one is in the works, and it'll be cataloged here.
GOLD TIER
$10 or more per month 4 patrons
"Put it on my card."


Show your support in an even BIGGER, GRANDER, MORE OSTENTATIOUS WAY. Thank you so much. You are really making dreams come true over here.


You'll receive all of the above: access to the occasional livestreams & patron blog, concept work & story notes, peeks at upcoming projects, monthly page breakdowns, secret bonus comics, and:

  • Free pdfs of all of my work as it comes out. This includes each individual Otherknown chapter as I finish the edits that I want to make on them, as well as all other side projects, including digital copies of what I sell in print at conventions. This will also include any side comics as I finish them. 
  • Undying gratitude (not redeemable except in the high-five of your choice at conventions, options: high, low, too slow)
  • This tier is gonna be cool one day but right now it's mostly just here in case you like my work a lot and are prepared to be on my "favorite persons" list
Goals
$79 of $100 per month
Guaranteed one stream per month! I'll send out an email about it in advance and we'll all have a fun time.

Also deliverable at this goal: I will draw the entire cast as dogs because we will have earned it
