Careers in Sand.
Speaking as I was of unusual career paths, here are some suggestions, mostly courtesy of growabrain.
Ilana Yahav is a sand animation artist - she does videos of herself drawing on glass with sand. This one is very cool.
Kirk Rademaker: "sand sculpture and interactive environmental art." The San Francisco Chronicle wrote: "Dump twenty tons of sand in front of Kirk Rademaker and he's a happy man. ... Using sand sculpting as the basis, he now conducts corporate team-building exercises around the country." This follows my principle that the happiest guys are those who are doing, as adults, what they liked to do when they were 2-3 years old.
Benjamin Probanza calls his work "ephemeral art."
This is the Queen of Sandcastles, featured in People Magazine, in case you were wondering (as I was) if this was a guys-only profession.
Here's the Winners' Gallery of World Championship Sand Sculpture. This more properly belongs, I suppose, in the "It Keeps Them Off the Streets" category.
I'm sure you were wondering: many of these sculptures get sprayed with a glue mixture to keep them up.
