This is a copy of a graphic I created for a client's web page. The original was done with straight lines, but to demonstrate antialiasing with the line tool, I used diagonal or slanted lines for this one. The only bezier curves are for the mouse cord and mouse. The tiny ones are harder than the longer ones. I always have a hard time with the last tiny line on the mouse.
