Man Spends 7 Years Drawing Incredibly Detailed Maze

This is the insanely detailed maze that Twitter user Kya7y's father spent nearly 7 years drawing some 30 years ago. That...is one hell of a hobby. For comparison, I used to doodle penises in the margin of my notebooks whenever I was bored in school. That and try to imagine my teachers naked. Mr. Edwards! Your wife must feel like one lucky lady.

When pressed for details, the father explained that he spent 7 years creating the map on A1 size paper, which is about 33 x 23 inches.


People have been asking @Kya7y about her father. Everyone seems to want to know more about the man behind this amazing maze. This morning she wrote, "Where does my father work? At a public university!! In the athletic department!!! As a janitor."

Oh man, when I was in college I made friends with my dorm's janitor. His name was Hobart, and he was a hell of a guy. It's weird thinking about him now and how fondly I remember talking to him. He would always swing by the room and drop off a latex glove with a half-smoked bowl of shwag and his Nascar lighter inside. He never even picked the seeds out of his crappy-ass weed. I probably learned more from that guy than every single class I took.

Hit the jump for some closeups.

Thanks to Alfi, who informed me there's never been a maze on the back of a cereal box he couldn't complete. Impressive!
