Guy Quits Job After Burning Man, Spends 10+ Years Creating Sand Art

Many of the tens of thousand of people who attend Burning Man are moved by the experience, their lives "changed" by that funkiest of all festivals, and then they resume their normal lives and move on.

But for 44-year-old Andres Amador the 1999 Burning Man festival was so impactful that he quit his job soon after attending the festival and started creating sand art full time.

Andres earns a living by taking commissions from clients for pieces which are generally photographed from high above (drone?), the photos then used on postcards and calendars.

It takes Andres hours to rake designs into the sand but only a few minutes for the tide to wash it all away, leaving a clean slate for Andres' next meditative masterpiece.
