Number 39: Beetle


Maze #39: Beetle
Bet it isn’t hard to guess where the name for this maze came from.  I was thinking it would be could to make mazes shaped like animals and stuff.  What better thing to start with than bugs?  By beetle, I was thinking of a June bug or a lady bug.  Sadly it kind of reminds me of a tick.  Anyway, the “starts” are by the eyes and you go around the legs and abdomen, along the wing covers and thorax, and “finish” back at the head.  Enjoy.

Number 38: “Ho Ho Ho”


Maze #38: Ho Ho Ho
For this maze, I wanted to make something a little Christmas-y.  I basically wrote the words “Ho Ho Ho” and drew the maze all around it.  The “starts” and the “finish” are the “O”s.  As an added touch I made this maze a nice holiday friendly red instead of my signature pink color.  Enjoy and Happy Holidays.

Number 37: Zig-Zag


Maze #37: Zig-Zag
Sorry that it’s taken so long to post anything, I had some personal things to deal with.  Anyway, with this maze I started by drawing a zig-zag and then just filling in the empty space.  Just a nice, quick and easy little maze.  Enjoy.

Number 36: Swirly


Maze #36: Swirly
I started this maze by simply drawing a random “swirly” line and moving on from there.  Sometimes the best techniques are the simplest.  Anyway, there is only one “start” and one “finish”.  Have fun.

Number 35: Macaroni


Maze #35: Macaroni
I decided to try another mini-maze.  This is possibly the smallest maze I have ever drawn, also maybe the easiest to solve.  As for the name, there was just something about the maze that reminded me of elbow macaroni noodles.  Anyway, just one “start” and “finish” with only one correct path.  Enjoy.

Number 34: Pole


Maze #34: Pole
With this maze, I was experimenting with different dimensions.  I had originally drawn it on it’s side, but I thought it looked better this way.  It kind of reminds me of a totem pole, hence the name.  Anyway, two ways to “start” and also two to “finish”.  Enjoy.

Number 32: Web


Maze #32: Web
I drew this maze like the last one.  I started with a circle and drew the maze in and around it.  The wavy edges and rippling reminded me of a spider’s web.  Makes it perfect for Halloween, though a little late for it.  Maybe next year.  Anyway, there are two ways to “start” and just one “finish”.  Enjoy.

Number 31: Turtle


Maze #31: Turtle
For this maze, I just started by drawing a circle and then drew the maze in and partially around it.  It reminded me of a turtle shell.  Anyway, there are four ways to “start” and only one “finish”.  Enjoy.

This is another fun with words sort of maze.  I started with the word “Cute” for this maze.  Why cute?  It’s one of my favorite words.  Anyway, there’s one “start” at the “C” and one “finish” at the “e”.  Have fun!

Number 29: “Sure”


Maze #29: "Sure"
I tried something new with this maze.  I started it by writing the word “Sure”, then drew the maze all around the letters.  Can you tell?  You “start” around the “e” and work your way around to the “S”.  Enjoy.

Number 28: Monkey Face


Maze #28: Monkey Face
With this maze, I started by drawing the “starts” and thinking along the lines of cherries or grapes.  When I finished the maze though, I thought it looked more like the face of those monkeys carved out of coconuts you see at souvenir shops.  Anyway, there are three ways to “start” and one “finish.  Enjoy.

Number 27: Crossroads


Maze #27: Crossroads
As the name says, this maze feature four “crossroads”, areas with four ways to go.  They were actually the first things I drew, even before the start.  Sadly, due to how I drew the rest of the maze, even I don’t know the solution.  Good luck.
One more thing, I just opened up a shop on CafePress.  Now you can buy t-shirts, mugs and other things featuring my mazes.  Feel free to check it out and please let me know if you have any suggestions or requests.

Number 26: Light Bulb


Maze #26: Light Bulb
For this maze, I got the idea to draw the “start” inside of the “finish”.  To me this looks very much like a light bulb hence the name.  From there it gets slightly more complicated.  Have fun.

Number 25: Point


Maze #25: Point
This is another mini-maze.  Actually the next few mazes will probably be mini too, I just love making them.  Anyway, the name for this maze come from that shape near the “start”.  It reminded me of an arrow.  There’s only one way to “start” and one “finish”.  Have fun.

Number 24: Digestion


numbeer 24 (862x1024)
I guess it has been awhile since I posted a maze.  And I guess that is an odd name for a maze.  Looking at this one reminded me of intestines, kind of like the ones I used to do in high school.  Maybe I should post a few of those some day.  Anyway, this is a quick mini-maze with one “start” and one “finish.  Enjoy.

Number 23: Turnip


number 23 (1024x992)
With this maze, it was the shape that got me.  Something about the shape the paths made reminded me of a root vegetable.  The turnip came to mind only because of a movie I watched recently.  One of the characters in the movie is a scarecrow with a turnip for a head.  This has one “start” and one “finish”.  It’s a relatively easy maze, but should still be fun.

Number 22: Sunrise, Sunset


Number 22 (1024x868)
With this maze, the “start” and “finish” reminded me of the way the sun looks at dawn and dusk.  Hence the name.  A simple maze with only one “start” and “finish”, it definitely won’t take you from sunrise to sunset to finish it.  I know, that was corny.

Number 21: Monkey in the Middle


Number 21 (1024x660)
For this maze, the monkey in the middle is the single “finish”.  I guess that’s kind of obvious though.  Anyway, there are four ways to “start” and only one will lead to the “finish”.

Number 20: ???


number 20 (1024x665)
This maze is more of an abstract piece.  I didn’t have anything specific inspiring me while drawing it, I drew it as it came to me.  Still, I do think it looks pretty cool.  Two ways to “start”, two to “finish”.  Only one way to go.

Number 19: The Tree


number 19 (882x1024)
The name for this maze comes not from how it looks but how it was drawn.  I started with the “start” as if it were a seed.  The path drawn keeps splitting and branching out just like branches on a tree.  At least that’s how I see it.  Anyway, there is one “start” and two “finishes”. Enjoy.

Number 18: Sundae


Number 18 (1024x764)
I got the idea for this maze while looking at the cover of a comic book.  The cover picture had the characters floating in a giant ice cream sundae.  I thought the layers of ice cream looked pretty good so I tried to recreate that in this maze.  So the “start” is the cherry on top (the first thing you eat) and the “finish” is at the bottom (the last spoonful).

Number 17: Pyramid


number 17 (1024x810)
Bet you can’t guess how this maze got it’s name?  I think it was only a matter of time before I tackled a triangle shaped maze.  Anyway, this is a pretty easy maze.  Very kid-friendly, in more ways than one if your kids are learning shapes.  Just one “start” and only one of the “finishes” is real.  Enjoy.

Number 16: The Fan


number 16 (1024x759)
The idea for this maze came to me while staring at the fan in my room.  Where would I be without that fan, it hit 105 degrees today and that’s considered cooler.  Anyway, this one has one “start” with several ways to go.  Don’t get lost when heading to one of the four “finishes”.

Number 15: Stonehenge


number 15 (881x1024)
This is a little mini-maze I drew at church while waiting for someone.  I named it Stonehenge because looking at the “start” and the “finishes” reminded me of it, at least a part of it.  Anyway, this is a really simple little maze and fairly easy to solve. Perfect for young children.

Number 14: Cheese Spread


number 14 (1024x1006)
For this maze, I was watching TV one day and a commercial for cheese came on.  It was for that one kind of spreadable cheese that is wrapped in foil wedges and comes in those cute round boxes.  So naturally I just had to grab a sheet of paper and start drawing.  Anyway,  There is only a single “start” and “finish” on this one but each half is a separate maze.  That’s right, two mazes in one.  Have fun.

Number 13: Autumn Breeze


number 13 (866x1024)
Guess what inspired this maze.  That’s right, leaves.  Actually I was inspired by the leaf print on a makeup bag I have.  Anyway, there are five ways to “start” to get to only one “finish”.  Obviously only one is real, can you guess which one?

Number 12: Orange Slices


number 12 (792x1024)
I continued with the idea from the last maze about using different shapes.  For this one, I was inspired by a picture of the moon at first.  Except the “start” and “finish” here reminded me more of orange slices than moons.  Kind of sad too, I can’t eat oranges anymore without breaking out in a rash.Crying face  Anyway, one “finish” and one “start”.  Just don’t lose your way.

Number 11: Flower Power


number 11 (793x1024)
This maze was mostly inspired by an idea I had and partially inspired by my clipboard.  It has pretty flowers on it, the clipboard not the idea.  I just one day thought that the “start” on my mazes doesn’t have to be circular or rectangular in shape.  Why not flower shaped?  So I went on from that and I truly love the effect.   Anyway, this maze has four ways to “start” and just one to “finish”  Pick your flower.

Number 10: Grilled Cheese


number 10 (1022x1024)
This maze was started by drawing a diagonal line with the “starts” at each end.  The shape of it reminded me of grilled cheese sandwiches cut diagonally.  Now I’m getting hungry.  Two ways to “start” it with two to “finish”.  Just like the last maze, only one true “start” and one true “finish”.

Number 9: “S”


number 9 (794x1024)
I started this maze by simply drawing a big letter “S” and going on from there.  You can probably guess where I started.  There are two ways to “start” and four places to “finish”, but only one of each that works.

Number 8: Egg


number 8 (1024x791)
Like most of my mazes, I started this one by simply drawing a circle for the “start”.  I immediately thought it looked like an egg, at least one on its side.  I liked it like that, so I kept it.  Of course, now that I finished, the maze looks like an egg with hair.  Yummy.

Number 7: Domino


number 7 (793x1024)
I can’t but think of the irony.  The last maze took less than 30 minutes to draw while this one took over a week, and honestly I don’t think it came out quite at good as it should have with that amount of time.  Anyway,  with this one the “start” and “finish” are very similar to each other.  It reminded mean of the spots on dominos hence the name.

Number 6: 30 Minutes


number 6 (783x1024)
This one I drew at church on the back of a registration card.  It was between services and I had to find something to do until 2nd service.  It took me less than the 30 minutes to draw this, a new record.

Number 3: Four Square?


number 3 (1280x1082)

This one was fun.  It’s like four mini mazes in one.  Each side has one “Start” and two “Finishes”.  As usual, only one “Finish” is real in each side.

Maze Number 2: Ramen


Maze Number 2: Ramen

As the name implies, this one reminds me of packaged ramen noodles before you cook them.  One place to “Start”, four to “Finish” with only one being real.  It’s an easy maze though, should be fun for kids.

Number 1 – The Introduction

Once upon a time, I would spend my time doodling things.  Flowers, people, and mazes.  I eventually drifted away from that and years past with very little thought about the mazes of those sort of far gone days.

number 1 (1280x981)

Then one morning I woke up from a strange dream.  That’s another talent of my mine, remembering dreams after I wake up.  In the dream I was drawing mazes again and blogging about it.  Thinking for a minute, I decided that was a great idea.  I immediately drew this maze, the first one in almost 10 years.  I know I need to practice them more, but what better way to do it.  :)
