Get a pen and just _scribble_ ? _Make your cave-dwelling ancestors looking over you proud?_ No? I do. Realizing that nobody can stop me from doing that any more was awesome! I'm not particularly good at free-hand sketching, so I first printed a template for what I wanted to draw, made a cutout, and traced it with a pencil on the door of my built-in closet. ![IMG_20190824_175856min.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/suesa-random/Xv7jEOdB-IMG_20190824_175856-min.jpg) While tracing, I noticed that the paint on the closet door was very smooth, and the pencil kept smudging. I probably would've needed to sand it a bit, but I was a bit stubborn and instead got one of the water-resistant permanent markers I use in the lab to go over the lines again. ![IMG_20190824_180222min.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/suesa-random/7qMoxwjT-IMG_20190824_180222-min.jpg) After I was done, I carefully removed the pencil lines with a damp tissue. Luckily, the pen stayed where it was supposed to stay and did not smudge! ![IMG_20190824_181127min.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/suesa-random/Zn7v0XXt-IMG_20190824_181127-min.jpg) ![IMG_20190824_181133min.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/suesa-random/xQrBocGW-IMG_20190824_181133-min.jpg) I consider getting some colourful permanent markers with bigger tips to colour the sketches. It'd also be cool to add some more things, do you have any suggestions? I will need a template to do anything.
