Canceled Flight

Canceled Flight

Kill The Pigeons

As some of you may (or may not) remember, I had a desktop available for downloading on the old site called "Kill The Pigeons". The illustration was done for a book by author Avitrol Jones, and soon after I finished the illustration, I put it in the "probably not going to happen" pile.

Well — it turns out I was wrong. "Canceled Flight" has been recently published, featuring 101 different ways to kill pigeons. Numerous artists contributed to the book, including my own personal gotta-sees such as Jon Burgerman and John Copeland.

I really enjoyed the book, on a humor level, and I also have to say some of this art is just gorgeous - I'm quite proud to be included with this bunch. So check it out; especially if you are in need of a few flying pest-removal solutions...

My memory is worse than a goldfish's, where can I see the desktop now? :(


Heheh - Don't worry, Anders - I plan to put it up once I get a chance :)


congrats, Kevin!


WOW! Not that I ever expect to see something unterrific from you, but...WOW!
The subject matter reminds me of that old Tom Lehrer song.

Biggest Apple

Made me think of the very same song Ian :)


congrats, Kevin! This is great! Is this a book aimed at children or adults?


Thanks Rachael! I'd say adults. But I'd like to think children might get their hands on this too, so they can ALSO be offended by the content. :)


"Mommy, is that birdy sleeping?" XD


"Yes dear... they're... all sleeping..." *gulp*


This is exactly the kind of thing that my mother would have read to me- along with the edgar allan poe and victorian horror classics....
birds DO sleep in pools of ketchup, right?


Awesome work you've made there, mr Cornell!


it looks even better on a nice big full page spread. it looks like real good printing too.


Congrats kevin! This book has gotten great reviews so far. Your stuff is right on par with all the other amazing artist. I am quite jealous, but whats new. Great job!


I'm still waiting for my copy in the mail. :D Are pigeons funnier than sock monkeys? We shall see.
