Many people are under the impression that camel drawing is not a very lucrative field. They are often surprised when they find out my annual income is well into the 6-figure range. Below is a recent exchange I had with a representative from a mining company in Mauritania. While he has not replied to my last email or given any indication that he will be paying me for my work, I expect a bank transfer from him any day now.
Note: AQIM = Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb
While I wait for this bank transfer, you can get started drawing camels by downloading the how to draw camels ebook. You can pay as much as you want (or nothing at all). Keep in mind that if you purchase the book, 100% of the profits go to the current featured project supporting female pilots in Ghana, who are building planes in addition to flying them.
I will be transferring all donations from ebook sales since March to Medicine on the Move and AvTech Academy in July. After that, donations will be split between Mali Health Organizing Project and Project Muso – two incredible organizations that continue to operate in Mali despite the political uncertainty.
