In 2012 I created the world’s largest hand-drawn maze. It drew international attention. It received coverage from the Wall Street Journal, CBC Canada, AOL News, Huffington Post, and much more.

My mazes are detailed hand-drawn creations that feature cartoon illustration integrated into the maze itself.

The original record setting maze measured over 128 square feet and featured over 100 illustrations. It toured throughout the US and Canada to comic-cons, museums and more. That maze now has a permanent home in Changzhou China.

This year I plan to top that record by creating a maze that measures over 3 feet foot tall by 100 feet wide! Over 300 square feet and over 200 illustrations! As you can imagine it takes a lot of planning, time and effort to accomplish a task of this magnitude.

The maze will be drawn on a single roll of paper measuring 3 feet high by over 100 feet long.

Once completed it will tour worldwide to museums, conventions, and more.

There are lots of great perks for supporting the project; books, original art and more!
