    Draw a rectangle right below the center oval. Draw good ol' George in the center, getting his facial features as close as you possibly can to the real thing.

    To make your bill look more real, draw some vines made of eye shaped leaves covering the top corners. (This step isn't 100% necessary, but go ahead and vine it up if you are so inclined.)

    Finally, add the wording of the bill. Write "Federal Reserve Note" on top, "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" right below it and finally "ONE DOLLAR" below President Washington's image. You can add extra words if you like; look at a real dollar bill for inspiration.
