Cooking Stick Figure
Draw your basic stick figure with its line limbs, circular head, and irregular hands and feet. Beside one hand, draw an oval.
Draw a line across it to form the skillet. Inside, draw a circle with a wavy line around it - the fried egg drawing. Enclose a small oval on the opposite side of the hand, and draw the eyes and mouth to one side so the figure is looking at the pan.

Draw the facial features on one side of the face so that he is looking at an opponent. Use downturned lines for the frowning mouth and furrowed brows.
