About This Project


In The Legend of Diamond Lil, my second book with Doreen Cronin, we join J.J. the dog detective on another mystery. And like most noir mysteries, this one has a fetching dame. Almost literally.

Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy! Especially if you've already read The Trouble With Chickens. Or any of the Chicken Squad books!

About Kevin

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.

He has illustrated several books, websites, and comics, and has been doing it for quite a long time now. There's a ton more work on his old site, if you've a hankering to see more. To see his most current sketches, comics and drawings, check out his instagram.

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.
