By day, Brian Kesinger is a story artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios and by night he’s an author and illustrator of Walking Your Octopus. Kesinger masterfully blends the Disney world with the steampunk universe and imagines exciting adventures of a very unlikely friendship.
The main characters of these wonderful adventures are Victoria and her per octopus, Otto. “Everyone can relate to having a pet,” Kesinger says. “What I wanted to do with Otto and Victoria is to ask the question ‘What if your pet was an octopus?’ As soon as you do that you start to raise humorous scenarios like how hard would it be to housebreak an octopus when they’re inking everywhere.”
From a relaxing tea party on a boat to lighting the candles for the evening, Victoria does everything with her domesticated cephalopod. Scroll down to enjoy Brian’s stories and don’t forget to vote for your favorite ones!
