It is said that childhood experiences can more likely influence your personality and work as you grow old. This observation is particularly true for illustrator Théo Guignard.
As a child, Guignard has grown a sense of wonder and amazement for labyrinths of all kinds. He would draw a lot of them when he was young, keeping in mind the real concept of mazes: the difficulty of way finding. This has made him create 14 eye-popping labyrinths of interesting situations ranging from people sunbathing at the beach to puzzles reminiscent of the board games Snakes and Ladders, and the geometry of Tetris blocks.
According to Guignard, “The mazes you usually see for children are often a bit sad: black and white with not much going on between the start and end. I wanted these to be beautiful and filled with detail, a bit like “Where’s Charlie.”
The book, which will be entitled Labyrinth, will be published by Wide Eyed Editions.
