Imagine within each of our minds there exists a universe.  And that universe and reality is unique and specific because it is shaped and molded by our personal thought processes.  Now imagine that this universe in which we exist, this perceived reality… is simply in the mind of another in an alternate existence.  What if humanity’s notions of an apocalypse are just the suicidal thoughts of our own god?  This is a story of connected consciousness  and one person who is given the opportunity to convince our “creator” to live again and save existence as we know it.


Through the Cognitive Rift is a graphic novel created, written, drawn, inked and colored by myself, Natalie McKean. This project is very special to me and has been many years in the making. I am very excited to launch my first Kickstarter campaign that will directly fund the production and printing of physical copies.   As a full time artist I thank you for your support from the bottom of my heart and I hope to share this project with all who connect.
