I'm a self-taught (and still always learning!) illustrator from New York City and have always loved drawing, cartoons, comics and animation. After years freelancing as a studio artist at the NYC ad agencies, I finally took the leap to do illustration full time – all these years later it's still a crazy and fun way to make a living, still love it!

I've worked on a huge number of projects in my 20+ years in the business and have completed many jobs for top consumer & pharma advertising agencies, toy & game, entertainment and publishing brands such as Hasbro, Lego, Disney, Marvel, DC and Scholastic, and concept art for product developers and toy inventors.

It's a privilege to have this gig; keeping my client happy is my number one concern. I make a point of being very easy to work with and have never missed a deadline. I guarantee professional, courteous and attentive service every time.

I'm always glad to discuss a potential new project - email me at kennyk@kennyk.com or call (917) 686-0861 and tell me what you have in mind!

Testimonial love for Kenny Kiernan Illustration Studio!

When I hired Kenny for an illustration, I had a style in mind. After chatting with Kenny, he was happy to replicate and improve on it. His work was well beyond my expectations! Even better: he is super nice to work with, fast and always on time. You will not go wrong hiring him.

I've worked with Kenny for several years at Scholastic on Lego City books and Kenny creatively delivers, every time! He goes above and beyond expectations with his strong layout skills and beautiful illustrations, and he understands the Lego City Style Guide.

We have very few artists who understand the Lego City style guide and it's difficult get approval from our Licensor; but his work has always been an exception, which is why I recommend Kenny without hesitation, and look forward to working with him again. 

Angela Jun, Art Director, Scholastic

Kenny’s clean, energetic style works so well on illustrative projects from patient-friendly posters and comic books, to videos for sales rep meetings. It’s so easy to download him on what needs to get done in such a small amount of time. After a mere phone call, he gets on YOUR page — like a vulcan mind meld — it’s really amazing. 

He’s so excited to work on new things, and is always at the ready to meet demanding time constraints. Kenny's got that rare ability to be artistically talented, but disciplined with time. I’ve never been disappointed by his work and doubt anyone can be.

I started working with Kenny Kiernan way back in 2000, when he designed the well-known J-14 Girl mascot character we still love and use today. His editorial illustration work for Bauer Publishing has always been top-notch. Kenny knows how to stage a scene and creates fun, engaging characters with humor, personality and a youthful energy that makes them jump off the page. 

Consistently professional, easy to work with, and always delivers on time. Talented guy, and highly recommended! 

Gary Walsh, Art Director, Bauer Publishing

I have worked with Kenny K on many Outcast Otter projects and am always happy with Kenny's outstanding work and attention to details. He is a superb comic artist and the first one I call for new characters. 

Montgomery C. Floyd, CEO, Outcast Global Holdings, LLC 

My experience with Kenny far exceeded my expectations! He was easy to work with and truly made the characters in my book come to life. I could not be more pleased with the outcome of this book, and look forward to continuing our endeavors on future projects. 

Todd Pasick, World Silver Medalist, author of "The Adventures of Hockey Todd"

Kenny has illustrated several projects where I was the art director. He's extremely talented, smart and knows exactly how to capture ideas with his illustrations. His craftsmanship is impeccable—there's not one stray point on his vectors. He's also reliable with schedules, and a pleasure to deal with. I hope to work with Kenny again in the future!
