About

Welcome to the Galaxy.

Galaxy is constantly expanding, breathing, interactive collection of stories. It is an attempt to build a galaxy of stories and experiences through art. In a far-flung future of extraordinary travel, limitless technology and countless species the opportunity for storytelling is endless.

We want to feature artists sharing in characters, stories and locations to create a community of writers that sharing and expanding each other’s already brilliant work.

We are also collating a collection of artefacts. Artefacts can be anything and everything. Music, Comics, imagined academia, illustrations, designs – the galaxy is yours. These can be extensions of existing stories or a project in its own right. Current artefacts can be found on the artefacts page.

Galaxy is a project, a building with limitless dimensions. He wants you to share in the building of this space.

Check out the journey so far in the Galaxy Database.
