Get an A-Maze Mug! c[_]


Hey, we talked about it before… No one, not two, but three times.

It’s finally here! Get an A-Maze Mug from Ci3! How cool is that? Each mug comes with a dry-erase marker so you can solve the maze, both in a nifty box covered in mazes!

More cool maze-related merch coming soon. What else would you like to see? Socks? Masks? T-shirts? Books? Puzzles? Mirrors? Tiles?

I haven’t ever done anything to make my mazes available for any kind of sale, so this is exciting to me. What do you think?

I am eternally grateful to Mike Copen for the nudge and the opportunity. It’s so cool for artists, designers, entrepreneurs, & creative types to support each other.

Of course, I think they’d make great gifts for friends, family, teachers, co-workers, or even anyone that may be hard to buy for. Who doesn’t like a nice warm beverage? Solving the maze with the dry erase marker is a good opportunity to kind of zone out in a zen-like state, to help you regain focus to start the day or even decompress at the end of a long day! I know that’s the drive behind drawing them.

These would be great for coffee, tea, hot cocoa, warm apple cider, ramen, or one of my soup recipes.

Please, share the link if you’re so inclined. I’d like to see how far these can go. Thanks in advance if you plan on making a purchase!

A Crazy Maze – Try it out!


Lots of people have some extra time right now.Β  Take the time to challenge yourself with this maze.Β  I drew it on graph paper.Β  The paths are very small.Β  I would love to see someone tackle it.

I scanned the original & left as-is, then played with the brightness/contrast a bit on a second one to try to get the blue grid out.

Print one out & give it a try.Β  Or, try it out on your mobile or tablet screen.

If you do finish it, post it & tag me on social media.Β  I’m @AiXeLsyD13 on Instagram & twitter.Β  You can find me if you look on Facebook too.Β  You could even post it in the comments.

Maze Mugs? A-Maze Mugs? a-MAZE-ing Socks?


Did you see the first post and the last post about the maze mugs?Β  Mike has been doing some fun stuff, and I have (very slowly) been working on mazes for the box.Β  Also, Mike posted some fun stuff:

Check out this packaging!

So, what do you think? Want to see mazes on anything else? Want them solvable? Like that packaging or love it? Check out Mike’s other stuff on Instagram!Β  He has been making some killer skateboard decks and a topical T-shirt.

I won’t get into the COVID-19 / Novel Coronavirus outbreak here, but if you’re bored in quarantine… remember you can do all of my mazes.Β  It’d be cool if you finished one, posted on the social media platform of your choice & tagged me.

I need to put a maze on a guitar. I need to update photos of my collection. I want to catalog them here since the sites I have found to do it don’t really suit my needs. Add that to the endless list of unnecessary projects to be completed “someday.”

MazeMugs? A-Maze Mug? Something else? Ci3 & I need your feedback.


Mike Copen of Ci3 Sublimation had the idea to put one of my mazes on to a mug, and I agreed that it would indeed be fun. We need your feedback to help make this something that people may be interested in buying?

Here are some images that Mike worked up;

Do you like the names? Feel free to comment your own.

I would also appreciate comments here on this blog post, or on my social media posts;

We have gotten some great feedback so far, and I dig it!

I really appreciate Mike helping take my mazes to something other than doodles on paper piling up here at the house, or floating out there in the cyberspace ether unnoticed.Β  Ha ha.Β  I am unable to determine the correct path on how to go about making a book and if there would even be an audience for just mazes.Β  I’m really not into making a theme other than “here are some mazes” outside the occasional inspiration for something else that’s goofy.Β  (Or on something that’s goofy.)

Maze Mugs (or A-Maze Mugs?) Possibly Coming Soon!


My friend Mike is helping make my mazes a bit more interesting!Β  This is a prototype.Β  Please, let us know what you think!

Check out Ci3 Sublimation on Big Cartel and Etsy for all kinds of cool products from Mike.

I think you know you can find my mazes here.

Would you like a maze mug?Β  Would you like a maze on anything else?Β  I think the dry-erase thing is super cool.

Mandalorian Maze


I, apparently like every other Star Wars fan, am fascinated by the Mandalorian and “the child.”

I was in a maze mood earlier too.

Help the Mandalorian find the child, or help the child find the Mandalorian.

Please excuse the drawings. I am wholly out of practice when it comes to things other than squiggly lines.

Print it. Solve it. Snap it. Post it. Tag me. (Or post it here in the comments.)

That’s @AiXeLsyD13 on most every social media platform.

If you’re so inclined, you could probably use a program on your phone, tablet, or ancient laptop or PC to solve & post.

I posted it on Instagram earlier.

My 6 year old saw me drawing and drew her own “Baby yoda.”

She is cooler than me.

So is it Baby yoda? Baby Yoda? Baby Not-Yoda? Baby Yoda-Clone?

Hit me up in the comments, then go read my last post.

Another 7 #Mazes – @AiXeLsyD13 on Instagram


I dunno why I group them in 7’s.
