Genuary is an event that provides a different prompt every day through January, and creative coders make generative art based on the prompt each day. This year, Genuary 6th’s prompt was “In the style of Vera Molnár”.

Vera Molnár was an early digital artist, and she created really interesting artwork back before creative coding was really a thing!

This sketch creates a design similar to some of her artwork, by randomly drawing squares in a grid.
