I purchased this pen and watercolor drawing on a vacation to Uzebkistan in 2009. The subject is a Bactrian camel, a ubiquitous creature in the Eurasian Steppe. Around this time one of these magnificent beasts chased me down a street in Afghanistan after losing a fight with another ill-tempered camel (I escaped unharmed into a Toyota Town Ace parked down the street). Being that Uzbek currency is subject to fairly ludicrous inflation, I was obliged to hand over a stack of bills large enough to make a rapper blush when buying the drawing. It currently sits unframed atop my living room mantel.
