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.

Me and my sister just saw Big Hero 6 and both thought it was cool to see your name in the credits! What other Disney movies have you worked on?

You've been a big inspiration to me for a while now! Your characters, the way you just make everything so smooth and dynamic at the same time aaaah. 

In other news I just watched Big Hero 6. IT WAS THE BEST. Thank you for being awesome and I'd like to extend my kudos to the entire team there at Disney for creating a great movie! I'd like to be an animator or just work in a studio some day, so rest assured that this movie will be in my head for weeks. <3

I'm talented myself in the world of art and hope to become a character designer one day. Or maybe an author/illustrator. ^^

Of course I wouldn't get too excited yet because I'm only a Freshman so....erm, let's just say it's going to take a while before I get an actual CAREER on the whole thing.

But still, I do what I love and I love what I do. Just a little warning on who just may be at a professional studio workstation one day instead of her bedroom desk....*Cough cough* ^^

(P.S. I would probably fall off my chair if I found out you actually read this, being where I wanna be in a few years. But don't worry, the fall shall be cushioned by my completely honored joy. ^^)

Thank you!
