By day, Brian Kesinger is a story artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios and by night he's an author and illustrator of Walking Your Octopus. Kesinger masterfully blends the Disney world with the steampunk style and imagines exciting adventures of a very unlikely friendship.

The main characters of these cool drawings are Victoria and her exotic pet - octopus named Otto. "Everyone can relate to having a pet," Kesinger says. "What I wanted to do with Otto and Victoria is to ask the question, 'What if your pet was an octopus?' As soon as you use for drawing inspiration, you start to raise humorous scenarios like how hard would it be to housebreak an octopus when they're inking everywhere."

From a relaxing tea party on a boat to lighting the candles for the evening, Victoria does everything with her cool pet cephalopod. Scroll down to enjoy this Disney animator's stories, and don't forget to vote for your favorite drawing ideas!

It'd be easier just to let him stain the rest black and call it a day.

I'm concerned that the octopus would suffer from the sun a lot more than the girl though :/

She flies thru the air, with the greatest of ease, that daring young woman, on the Octo trapeze

Every octopus should be really good at curling, they already do it with their arms.
