Nice treatment of the randomization function!

There are three User-submitted entries that provide a hand-drawn look:
  a.  Indexed Shapes: More Wacky Hand-drawn-looking Visio Shapes 
  b.  Audio Speakers: the wacky version
  c.  Sentence Diagramming Shapes

The attached makes use of color randomization: 
  1.  1st rectangle in upper left corner was duplicated twice.
  2.  The 3 objects were grouped.
  3.  The group was then array duplicated.
  4.  For individualization, each individual rectangle may be double clicked to change it's color.   
      (Easier if you ungroup first.)

Regarding the rectangle itself:
  1.  Color and pattern will randomize upon placement, and multiple placements.
  2.  Double clicking will randomize colors and patterns
  3.  Right click menu allows you to change the fill patterns and individually randomize colors and
        patterns.

Enjoy!
