As part of my New York Scenes series for The New Yorker I recently drew the Bocce (or Pétanque) players in Bryant Park. These guys play at lunch time and have a ball (actually more than one). The first piece was deemed too observant: the main fellow might not like all this attention. So a second was done. Now the main guy was smaller and much less himself. Note the change of seasons. It ran about a month later than planned.
