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.

Hi, love your art and I would recognize it anywhere! And, well, I did. Not sure if you have given this person permission or if someone has already told you this, but someone is selling your steampunk Optimus Prime on a glass here…

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 ? :)
