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

9 panels

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

This reminds me of the traveling salesman problem, but is nothing like that.

Use each pair of teleports while traveling from one dot to the other, but while traveling conventionally, don’t cross any black lines or your own path.

Using the same start, end, and initial lines, I drew this while listening to Andreas M. Antonopoulos educate the Senate of Canada about Bitcoin.

Start at the start and end at the end!

I drew a few straight lines and considered making a mirror maze, but have no way to easily measure the angles to make sure they’re precise. So I abandoned the mirror concept and just drew in some other lines.
