Challenge #3

Can you draw something you would want to hide under your top hat?

Did you know: Sixteenth president of the United States Abraham Lincoln was exceedingly tall at 6 foot 4 inches, and the addition of his famous top hat accentuated his height even further. Lincoln used to keep papers and speeches tucked inside his hat and he would fish them out when needed, making his hat not just a natty bit of headgear but also a useful repository.
