here is a brief description of the book which is published by baby tattoo books

Camelsm by BrianKesinger

A lavishly illustrated Victorian era travelogue chronicling the international journeys of Octo-Victorian globetrotters Victoria Prismall and her pet land octopus Otto, this scenic follow-up to Brian Kesinger's instant classic Walking Your Octopus is sure to delight all manner of world adventurers. Thirty panoramic, full-page illustrations showcase Victoria and Otto as they explore destinations in Scotland, France, Holland, Spain, Austria, Romania, Italy, Russia, China, Japan, Thailand, New Zealand, Mexico, and beyond. From snowy Himalayan peaks to lush Amazon rain forests… from the tombs of the Pharaohs to the depths of the oceans... from the beaches of the Caribbean, to the plains of the American west… see it all from the comfort of your favorite reading spot. The book's art is both beautiful and captivating, with each illustration telling its own visual story about the whimsical characters and their fun-filled situations. As with Walking Your Octopus, this book is collectible art-object for those who still value the classic elegance of ink-on-paper. The hardcover binding is plussed with two-layer embossing and spot varnish, and the interior is printed on extra heavy paper. An exquisite volume for lovers of books, art and pets.

I really, really, really, really LOVE what you do !!!! Especially Victoria and her octopus (I'm sure you really have one). Can I use one of your picture on my facebook ? (with your name and the link of your deviant, of course)  ? Because I'm a crazy green-haired girl too.
Oh ! And where could I buy the book ? :)

Hello Mr. Kesinger,

I would like to ask you how I can give my drawings more life and how it looks more in 3D.
A friend learns me animation in some days, but I would like to make my drawing and storys more real.

I hope you can help me and give me some tips.

Best wishes from Bavaria

Hello! I'm not sure if there's another way to contact you, via email or such, but here I am!
I'm a student from Whitney High School in California, the same one you went to, actually! And students are assigned to "interview" someone in a career that they'd like to pursue in their future. I've chosen illustration, and was wondering if I could maybe ask some questions via Deviantart notes or e-mail! : )
