As we approach the first day of Spring I wanted to create a maze to celebrate the season. Spring is one of my favorite times of the year because we can finally come out of hibernation and enjoy nature again.

I was thinking of all of the things that are great about Spring. Since I’ve already created several flower mazes I decided to draw butterflies for this month’s maze. One of my favorite events here in Pittsburgh is the Butterfly Forest at our local Botanical Gardens where you can walk among various butterflies and see them hatch from their chrysalis .

What’s fascinating about butterflies is the incredible amount of variety within the species. There are over 17,000 butterflies in the world and around 725 types in North America alone. Since it is unrealistic to draw over 700 insects I decided to pick eight of the more interesting ones we find in North America for this maze. I wanted the puzzle to simulate a bug board that an amateur Entomologist would display his insect collection.

This maze turned out to be more technically challenging than I expected. In order to make the maze more interesting I had to add the patterns to the background. Overall this was one of the more difficult mazes to crate which surprised me.

I wanted to add an additional game element to this maze. I decided to do something similar to the fishing lure and snowflake mazes. The more butterflies you pass through as you complete the maze the higher the score you earn.

The above picture is the maze in process. All of my mazes start out as a pencil line drawing and then are filled in with marker. The color is added with colored pencil after the maze is completed. The wording is added digitally after I scan the maze into the computer. The finished product is converted into a PDF and added to the website.

If you have an idea for a maze I’d love to hear about it. Additionally, if you just have some feedback you’d like to share please let me know via email () or social media (, ).
