This maze features nice curvy lines made with bezier curves and then some straight lines which make the maze just a bit trickier to solve.

Travel on white paths from dot to dot in upper left and lower right corners.

Travel from the top left corner and reach the dotted areas in ascending order of quantity.  For an extra challenge, do so without crossing your path!

This is hardly a maze, but the panels form a maze-forming puzzle!

Travel from dot to dot (in top area of bottom center panel)

This maze includes a spiral and maybe a plus sign, though it’s sideways.

Graeme asked me to make a maze with the word BURGER in the middle. It’s based on a design he sent me.

The Stanley Hotel hosted a competition to design a maze for their front courtyard. I submitted an entry, along with 328 other peeps.

I don’t think the winning design is much of a “maze”, but I agree it’s prettier than my version (partly by brightening the colors given in the key).

Winner!  (archive link)

browsing /r/mazes, I saw a request for a maze. I happened to have some free time so I drew this in a few hours.

choose an exit on edge of maze; try to get there from central space

Here are two mazes for the price of one!  In each case, they are drawn on paperboard called “shikishi” (色紙) in Japanese.  In each case they have their own permalinks.

Under pink and green lines, travel along noodle paths from start to finish
