aerubin-Project-09-Computational Portrait

For this project, I selected an image that describes my passion for music and playing the viola. The portrait created from the code can be altered depending on where the mouse is located as the picture is being drawn one square at a time. The placement of the mouse determines the size of the squares. Pictured above, this is what occurs when both large and small squares are utilized.

Pictured directly above is when only small squares are utilized. This can be drawn by putting the mouse in the upper left hand corner.
Pictured below is when only large squares are used. This can be drawn by putting the mouse in the lower right hand corner.
