A vertical set of curves with slightly changing distance of lines, within small borders, and changed lenght of lines are building the basic pattern. On top reside the square hatchings. For those apply the following random elements:

  • Amount of squares (here: 28)
  • Position of the squares
  • Size of the squares
  • Density of the hatching
  • Direction of the lines from the hatching (horizontal or vertical)
  • Choice of drawing pen
