Busy busy busy recently and the maze per week deadline says hellooo every week! Strange that!

Enjoy this easy one while you can! I plan to make a super complex maze based on this one, so get ready for that next week!!

Travel from small dot in top left down to bottom right.

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

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!

By request, a maze where the blue heart wins!

When I was little, I learned that HI could be read as HI if turned 90 degrees.

When I exported the ellipses and ribbons maze, I had the what background layer invisible, but didn’t notice for some reason. Here’s the maze as originally designed:

Though the ribbons and parallel paths may look like they pass over and under each other, this maze is designed to be purely flat.

There’s a very simple way to solve it, and a more complex way to solve it.  Either way, the path does not cross any dark lines.

jack> How about having the maze start point be on the upper left corner. 3 exits can be on each corner, with the fourth right in the center, hopefully a large square in the center.

jack> Please use many rigid, straight lines and many 90 degree angles.

How’s this?

four exits, but which is the entrance?

I don’t know which is the start, but the connections are in the spoiler!

I made this maze with lots of pointy angles instead of smooth curves. Sometimes life plays hardball. Curves coming next week!

Start from one dot and go to the other dot. Top left to bottom right is easier than the other way around.

The basic pattern for this maze was taken from a game level I made for a guy I met online.   I hope to do some cross-promotion with his work and mine!

This maze is quite easy no matter which way you solve it.  One way is just very circuitous!

I recently saw a ten second tutorial on how to smooth lines in Gimp.

I used it to smooth the lines in this maze.   The start and end points are in the upper right corner.

There are times that I want to make mazes with one-way portions, and I recently figured out a way to do so that would kinda make sense without saying much.

In February, I titled the image “over there” as in where to go when solving the maze, but it looks so dense as I post it now that I prefer the name Crowded Mouse.

I started this maze while on the train with Lin to Paola and Jon’s house. Start at one of the small dots and travel to the other dot, using teleportation points as needed.

Travis had an interesting idea for a promotional tool: a business card creator!  He made one at FabCafe in Shibuya based on this design.

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.

Go in here and out there.
