Self Portrait Maze of the Artist - Dec 31 2006
This is a maze I call "April Showers Bring MAZE Flowers".
My name is Yonatan Frimer. I began drawing mazes in the 3rd grade out
of boredom. Anytime my mind
would wonder off I would simply whisk away the boredom with my mazing
pencil strokes - they didn't let us write with pens yet at that age.
Fast forward about 20 years later to when I broke my leg in a
accident and was hospitalized and bed bound for nearly 2 years. Too
keep my mind as busy as possible during my recovery, I focused on
drawing my mazes. As much as 15 hours a day, pretty much everyday, for
nearly 2 years. I practiced drawing not just mazes, I've also learned
portraits and caricatures as well as anime and plain old comics, but in
the end I always incorporated my new skills into better maze making.
I usually try to work the word MAZE in a funny way into some normal
saying or catch phrase
Mazerotti is intended to sound like Maserati, the exotic Italian sports
Somewhere in storage, near a Mediterranean coast, I have a booklet of
mazes I titles Maze Anatomy
I guess you could call it a spin off the famous Anatomy Illustration
Book, Grey's Anatomy.
Drawing Anatomically correct biology illustrations is much harder than,
and not nearly as much fun, as it looks.
Here is one of the mazes from that collection: An Eukaryotic
Can't imagine why these never really took off.
I have recently begun publishing my mazes and am very
in speaking with any publishers.
