Pennsylvania is finished! This one took far too long because of course I managed to overcomplicate it. I’ll try to tone it down on the next maze :) Maryland perhaps? Check out the final product on the main page!
I have a feeling that the song “A New York State of Mind” didn’t mean ‘in a state of utter confusion and frustration’. This maze might leave you feeling like that - it’s one of the more complex state mazes I’ve made so far. This was divided into ‘zones’, much like the Massachusetts maze, which adds an extra challenge.
The goal is to get from the tip of Long Island and exit into Pennsylvania on I-86 in the west. (Easy Mode is doing this in reverse - starting at I-86). The solution posted below is just one of many. This is a ‘flat’ maze - paths cannot go over/under each other. If that were the case you’d just ride the highways all the way out!

I finished this maze back in December 2018. It has two possible starts - either I-84 or I-95 in the southwest. The end is exiting out NE I-84 (toward Massachusetts).
The solution is just one possible route - there are multiple routes and detours! And you can try to exit out I-395 in the northeast, or out I-95 (to Rhode Island), for an extra challenge.
This one was actually a lot of fun to do. It’s full of weird little doodads and patterns in-between the maze pathways. You can see the process in the video here. That creepy little face on Cape Cod was completely incidental.
The maze starts on I-90 coming from NY and ends on Cape Cod (reverse that for an even more difficult maze).
The song is by Chris Zabriskie from his Undercover Vampire Policeman album.
Here is New Hampshire in all of its glory! This one took a lot longer than I expected, but overall turned out well. I think whichever state I do next (Vermont? Massachusetts?) will have far wider pathways. There's no reason these need to be the hardest mazes ever, after all.
The start of this maze is in the bottom right (Where I-95 crosses into the state), and the finish is the city of Concord.
I've never been to New Hampshire! Or New England for that matter. Drawing these has definitely sparked an interest though, I'd love to visit someday. Video of the drawing is below:
Find your way to Augusta Maine! This is the first maze in what I hope will become a series. We'll start with New England for now, if I can get all 50 states that would be amazing.
Take a look at the process in this video.
Hey there - It's been a while! I have a few new mazes planned, but I haven't had a chance to really sit down and focus on any lately. In the meantime, check out this Good Mythical Morning themed maze I made last year. GMM is a popular YouTube channel that I occasionally watch. This drawing was as much of an experiment in using my new Apple Pencil as it was anything else. But I think it turned out great. You can watch the step-by-step progress in the video below:
Below is a video showing my progress of a Stuff You Should Know themed maze. For the uninitiated, Stuff You Should Know is a podcast from www.howstuffworks.com. The hosts Josh and Chuck cover just about any topic you can think of.
I listen to it frequently and after the success of my Good Mythical Morning themed maze, I thought I'd follow it with another show that I enjoy.
But - to be honest, I'm not all that thrilled with the way this turned out. The maze has no real focus - it sort of ended up as a big blob. The details are hard to spot too. You won't find this maze listed on the main page or in the store because I'm just not that happy with it. I may make a second attempt in the future.
This past December, I participated in my first Reddit Secret Santa gift exchange. I, of course, opted to send my gift exchange recipient a custom maze.
Redditgifts.com will send you a list of your recipients interests, so I had a pretty good idea of what to make the maze about. She was a big fan of the shows Adventure Time and Over the Garden Wall, she had always wanted to visit Scotland, and she dreamed of hang-gliding with her future husband some day.
You can watch the process here:
This maze would eventually become "The Eraser" maze, after I removed all of the Secret Santa-specific parts.
