# asymmetrical

Something asymmetrical has two sides that don't match — it's uneven or out of whack.

If you know that symmetrical means that both sides of something are identical, then it should be easy to learn that asymmetrical means the opposite: the two sides are different in some way. Asymmetrical things are irregular and crooked, and don't match up perfectly when folded in half. Drawing something perfectly symmetrical is pretty hard, so most of your creations are probably asymmetrical.
