Every year a Portland graphic artist sets out to confuse people as much as possible. Peter Rockwell reveals his secrets on how he designs the annual corn maze at Kruger Farm on Sauvie Island. He does not use GPS. Rockwell prefers a low tech method that involves a pencil sketch, a scan by a computer, a massive enlargement, chalk and a tractor.
