Idea

Looking at mazes, with this as a way to navigate the maze. Capital F sans serif form as basis to show rigid maze. Looking at Designing Type by Karen Cheng and an old calligraphy manual for some proportion ideas. Think to fit the context of a book cover I may start from there. This could also become 3d and angled, so isometric or in proportion. Will be drawn from a top view to begin with either way, just depends how it's eventually rendered.

Cutting way through the clutter instead of taking the typical route.
Short cuts - cut through hedge maze
Pen maze - draw lines
ladders
bridges
white out
scizzors
brick/wall maze hammer through, sledge hammer, bulldoze
Climb on walls

Last step was print and review it, trying to get rid of some of those tiny gaps and awkward intersections of elements. It would make it less technicially accurate as a 3d form, but read better as a letter.
