Chicken Squad: The First Misadventure is the third book I've done with the fabulous Doreen Cronin. But instead of solving a mystery through the eyes of a detective dog, we follow the chicks on one of their cases. Take note: If you have an actual mystery you need solved, you should probably hire an actual human. Unless you have no money, in which case I'd hire the dog. When doing almost any contract work, the order is human, dog, then chicken.
Displayed here are some of my favorite drawings from the book, as well as some concept art and cover comps. Thorough!
If you're interested in getting your own copy of the book, I have great news. They sell it in bookstores! Or, if you're lazy like me, you can get it on amazon.com.
Kevin Cornell spends his days in Philadelphia, drawing made-up things. You know… like a “dog driving a bus”, or a “talking can of beets”. If you ever see a talking can of beets, tell Kevin. He's been trying to figure that one out for years.
If you have a book you want Kevin to illustrate, please get in touch with his agent, the distinguished Steve Malk. If you wish to contact Kevin because he's behind on his payments and you need to know where to send the next toe… hmmm… send that to his agent, too.
