10+ Illustrations By Disney Artist As To Why A Pet Octopus Would Be Great

Brian Kesinger is a story artist for Disney

He works at at Walt Disney Animation Studios to create plot and characters that we all inevitably fall in love with. But that’s not all he does. Kesinger has something extra up his sleeve. He’s also the author and illustrator of Walking Your Octopus: A Guidebook to the Domesticated Cephalopod. 

The context of this story makes all of the illustrations even cuter. It’s steampunk meets Disney with a whole lot of cute. In it, a green haired woman by the name of Victoria adopts an eight legged Octopus named Otto.

And the worlds explored by Victoria and Otto are just fantastic. You can support Kesinger by buying his book! You can also check out the following helpful links.
