This took a while to create.  I started with a maze that followed a grid and then curved all the curves smoothly with meticulous cutting and pasting of quarter circles.   I don’t know if there’s a faster way to do it with Gimp, but Travis was able to recreate something like this much more quickly with Illustrator, I think he said.

If you follow the paths without turning sharply, it’s relatively difficult to travel between the white nodes that are diagonally opposite each other.

This maze uses a tiling technique that makes for interesting patterns and slightly faster maze-making.  However, it makes the making so easy that the solving is too difficult for me personally.  I use flood fill to make sure it’s solvable.

Oh, and it’s called Comedy because I was watching Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K. when I made it.

Start and end are the dots on the right

I have no idea why I called this Circles, but the interior jagged lines were created by creating a relatively tight grid in Gimp and telling the cursor to follow the grid.

The start and end points are on the right, near the top.

This one started with the big empty shapes and then I added the angular border.  I had been planning to do something like Enlined Shapes, but ended up doing almost the opposite.

Travel from one dot to the other.

I made this maze while Takumi and Mikarin were at our house.  Takumi seemed the most interested, though I wasn’t able to explain *why* I was drawing it.

I am thrilled when I get to draw mazes for people to publish! I made this maze for the book Aba and Shamana, by Cynthia L. Floriani.

Help Aba follow the paths to reach Shamana!

I made this maze at Sarutahiko Coffee shop in Ebisu.  They have a fun friendly environment and great cocoa!   English writeup on timeout.jp

It my first maze after I learned how to use the paths tool a bit more effectively.

This is one of the first mazes I made after learning how to make seamless tiling in Gimp.   Offset layer is magic!

Curl of a cat tail at the bottom and two ears at the top?

Try to get from one ear to the other.
