Start by creating the shape itself. It could be hand drawn, but using pen tool is probably more civilized :P

You can always make the background black after you make the line or whatever it is.

Thanks for the responses guys.

Use the pen tool - and what... draw it freehand? I tried that, and it didnt turn out too well. :( Too off kilter....not even and not nearly symmetrical....
