Boredom is not an end-product, is comparatively rather an early stage in life and art. You’ve got to go by or past or through boredom, as through a filter, before the clear product emerges.

I did this sketch this morning (above) while having coffee. The boy was the son of a friend, at the beach and obviously not wanting to be there. You can feel his mood through the body language so well. I did another sketch of his brother (below) who was the complete opposite, head upturned to greet the warming sun of late spring.
