Otto the Steampunk Octopus

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 15, 2012, 8:10 PM


I mean, with a title like that, how can you not get excited?

Brian Kesinger's already made his mark in the animation world while working for Disney, but he's breaking out of that mold with a story of his own, revolving around an unlikely couple, Victoria and her fabulous pet octopus, Otto, following their daily adventures. They're downright adorable. Brian's work has always impressed me, and this project is no exception.



I can't really articulate my love for these characters... they're so charming, and portrayed in Brian's fresh take on a classic style, I don't know what's not to love - and I just can't wait for his book to come out! So if you haven't already, head over to his page and check out more of his work!

Ahhh that so cool~
A girl with a pet octopus is quite original~ I work at the aquarium and I just love our octopuses (Squirt and Rain<3). Their one of my favorite marine animals.
If it is going to be a book I would definitely love to read it.
