Black Hole Sun

January 10, 2009

This maze is named after the Soundgarden song “Black Hole Sun”, and is fairly appropriately titled considering there’s a massive black hole with swirling colors coming towards it in the picture.  This maze took me about two weeks to complete – editing took less than a day, however.  The paths you’ll notice are somewhat grainy – this is the natural effect of the pen bleeding on the the paper and not only does it help keep an authentic look, but its also unnoticeable when scaled back to the normal zoom.

If you were attempting to actually do this maze, I’d say your chances are about 5%.  The overwhelming majority of starting paths never have a chance to make it to the end, so you’ll find yourself starting over and over.  The start is in the upper right (choose any path coming from the edge of the picture).  The end is the one little path at the bottom of the black hole.

Any questions, comments, or if you’re interested in getting a print, please just write me an email at!

This is arguably my most complex maze to date.  As of now it is not photoshopped.  I will soon however.  I started this one before Goodbye in November, and hopefully the edit job will be done in February.

My advice to you is to not even try to beat it.  It’s insane.  The start is anywhere in the bold circle in the mid-left of the page (where the 4 bold paths meet), and then end is the bottom left, in the black hole.  You’ll really need to see this blown up to even start to make sense of it.  There are some confusing characteristics to it as well, and I might have to write out specific rules for people to follow.
