Here’s an example of modern day doodling – a quick sketch on my iPad using “Sketch Pro.” While working as an extra on a history-based documentary I took a selfie of myself in costume.

Who cares where the staples are.

This drawing is actually three drawings; a triptych, so to speak, depicting children involved in the classic tug-of-war, with the usual variety of success, failure, and enthusiasm.
Put side by side it would look something like this:
