Sanil Chitrakar, whose second name literally translates into an “artist” in his mother tongue, is so unbelievably good in drawing that his talent is now keenly followed across the world. His fans include one of the most familiar sporting personalities of our time, Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho Gaucho who last February posted a tweet about Mr Chitrakar on his Twitter account. 

This rising fame has meant Mr Chitrakar can now do what he loves doing and yet make a comfortable living. He has no shortages of work that keeps him busy with commissions ranging from US100 to US$5000 a piece, he said when asked about the financial rewards that his uncanny artistic abilities have brought.
