EÖ Presents 》 Eric Eckert: I Draw Mazes

“I’m hoping to have my first maze book self-published before 2013”. Eric Eckert

After years attempting learn I have resulted to accepting the fact that either you can draw or you can’t draw! I’ve tried to learn, to trace, even dot to dot! With no success I must say the talent to be able to draw is something I wouldn’t mind showing off. My brothers can both draw; I see it quite unfair that even my stick men come out on the unimpressive side! So when I see drawings I get really happy, especially when people are creative with it. And that is just what I found!

On my search for talent, I came across a maze artist. After checking out some of the people he incorporated in his designs I showed a few family members and they were just as impressed as me. You may not believe it but I actually used to do this but they were never solvable just patterned maze looking images. I couldn’t draw so couldn’t incorporate anything but lines, this guy is a legend to me! That’s when I decided I really wanted him featured in my blog! He is so cool! So ladies and gentlemen put your hands together for ‘another talented individual’ expressing themselves!

Mini Interview:

What made you start drawing mazes? What inspired you?

“I was in an after-school program when I was in first grade.  All the kids would sit and colour or do crafts and one day I saw a kid drawing mazes.  I asked him how he was doing it and he showed me.  Those mazes were pretty simple then.  I continued drawing over the years and continued to challenge myself to make them more complicated.  I loved the feeling of making them really difficult and then having my friends try and solve them.  Most of the time they would give up after a very short time.

Then a year and a half ago, I started working with the idea of putting people’s faces into the mazes.  I was looking for a way to get my mazes out there and get some recognition.  Through the use of Twitter and making celebrity face mazes, I’ve gotten some great responses and have a lot of people enjoying my mazes.”

What do you plan to do with this talent in the near future?

“I am hoping to have my first maze book self-published before 2013 and my goal is to have a real publisher pick up the book.”

Aside from photography, what are some other hobbies or interests you have?

“I have a wife and 2 daughters and spend my time camping, skateboarding and shooting films”.

 

One of my 30 goals in 30 years was to cover my office walls in a solvable maze.http://yntsites.com/30in30/office-maze/
