Starbucks Mom and Bored Kid

I  have been drawing Starbucks coffee drinkers for ages it seems and here's one from 12 years ago (!). A cold day in February '06, and a mom is keeping warm with a puffy down jacket and a large coffee drink. Her son sits at the table seriously bored. In winter the people move less and I can get more details of my subjects.

Good catch there of a moment in those people's lives. The kid may never remember it a day later, but you never know--I remember being bored out of my mind when accompanying my grandmother to a demonstration on flower arranging. I couldn't have been more than 9. Pyra, I have looked ALL over and can't find your email address. I'm very sorry. I'm just not good at finding things. Mine is (works now).
