Maze 34

Finished this late last night. I'm proud of it. I got the idea when I was reading Labyrinths: Walking Toward the Center by Gernot Candolini. You start at the top of the maze, and you try to get to the center of the labyrinth. This is probably the hardest maze I've ever drawn and it took me forever. I'm a little disappointed that part of the far right side of the maze is cut off, but it's pretty easy to just imagine the wall there. Also I didn't crop it before I uploaded it so it looks kind of stupid. I'm too lazy to reupload it :( Click here to see it in it a much larger form.

As for that book, it's not bad. It's pretty short, but I didn't actually read the entire thing. I read most of it in a day but then I got bored and I haven't touched it since. I need to finish it, it's sort of interesting; basically it's about this guy's journey across Europe to see as many old labyrinths as he can (usually they're in old churches), and then he writes about his views on spirituality and what the labyrinths mean to him. It's fairly interesting, although he comes from a much more christian point of view than I do so I can't really agree with everything he says. It makes me want to write about my ideas about the philosophy of mazes and labyrinths, but the problem is I'm a terrible writer.
