The start of the second week begins with one of the most well known artists in the culture. Featuring one of the most iconic duos outside of Gotham. Victoria and Otto the Octopus are always getting up to adventures. In this book they travel the world sampling various cultures. That’s our April 8th prize for the Steampunk Journal Bonanza Giveaway.
We reviewed the book in December of 2015. It received 7 out of 10 and a Jolly Good Show award.
“Travelling with your Octopus, while a short read, is something that you can go back to time and again. The standard of art work and amusing captions makes it a book you can come back to and still have a little chuckle.” – Steampunk Journal review, December 2015
Brian Kesinger was raised on a steady diet of Walt Disney creations by parents who felt it important for him to be exposed to art. He was accepted at the Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, California during his senior year at high school. In 1996 at age 18 he became the youngest animator in the history of the company. He started as a layout artist on the film Tarzan and in his career with Disney Animation has filled many positions ranging from visual development to story artist.
You can see more of Brian’s work on his art website here.
I hope to share my learning experience with you and maybe even offer some inspiration as a way of giving back to the community of artists who have given so much to me.
The item up for grabs on 7th April is a hardback copy of Travelling with your Octopus by Brian Kesinger.
