My original drawing was far too simple. I decided to scrap my first idea and go for something new. I added a city and another island. The lake represents my name and how I am separated from my family but close to my friends.

A View From My Window: Cut Paper
A View From My Window
The view from my living room window consists of buildings, trees, roads and cars. As a result, I see many straight and curved lines. Squares, circles, rectangles, and even triangles are within my view.
The giant tree in front combines both straight lines and curved. The cars contain both straight and curved lines as well, and have rectangular shapes. The wheels serve as the circles I see. Roads appear at an angle which look like triangles. The buildings hold straight lines and are shaped like squares, rectangles, cubes, and rectangular prisms, depending on the angle you look at it at.
