Drawing Boredom in a Children’s Picture Book


I had a blizzard of computer problems today. The pricey new iMac is misbehaving again, refusing to update and having a hissy-fit of kernel panics. So I’m going to Plan B. I’m getting out the old reliable Thinkpad and using the Gimp to get the job done.

Today’s sketch shows a bored Jimmy Jay and his concerned friend Buddy Butterfly as they discover the disenchantment and ennui that lies at the opposite end of the happiness spectrum. Pen and ink, as always.

The image below is a mess…I’ll replace it tomorrow when I solve the riddle of the iMac.
