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.

Hello!  Just wanted to say that I'm enjoying the hell out of Groot.  The artwork is utterly charming.  And the Wolverine homage at the end of issue 004!!!

HELLO. I am a huge fan of your work. You have excellent technique. I'm a Digital art teacher at the High school level. I am moving the kids more towards digital painting, and away from more collage oriented projects.

I was wondering if you used you own custom brushes in Photoshop? I'm always looking for new brush sets. I recently had my students do a project where they created their own for a customized digital painting. I love your textures.

Do you make your own? Or do you have some favs you downloaded? (If so, then, from where? If you can tell me without giving away your trade secrets, that is) I am having the kids use the defaults, but I am using you as a feature artist for a project next year, for sure. They have lots of questions about your work. It is really great.
