RISD: the application, the dollar

I am in the process of applying to Rhode Island's School of Design (RISD).
They have an extensive list of credentials and requirements to meet. One is to do three drawings. The first is to use both sides of the paper (the paper must be 16x20"). For this drawing I chose to do a one dollar bill.
Here it is, both sides...
