Donau's Journey (El viaje de Donau) is not only a journey along the wise river but also a journey through all of our lives, from biological birth all the way to the sea, with many surprises along the way. Donau's Journey takes the form of the classic game "El juego de la oca" and it's more than a just board game. I used the goose game structure as a geometrical base for numerology, links between squares and relationships everywhere. And it can be used for play as well!

Myriad details wait to be discovered, some more hidden than others. Maybe you can feel for yourself the meaning of each square. This has been quite a personal project and at the same time an explanation of my vision of the Cosmos.

"The highest artistic aspiration is the creation of a one's own universe with one's own aesthetic, symbology and ideas."

I saw and admired a version by Rafael Alberti in Reina Sofía museum many years ago. I've always wanted to do something similar and finally started to put ideas together in April 2016. This new creation was growing quite fast and a huge quantity of inspiration came to me both day and night. I was fully focused on this project in April and May 2017 in order to complete it. I was too immersed in this fascinating and crazy river. Now, June 2017, it's complete!

It was done using mainly Rotring Isograph with Rotring ink and watercolors for the drawings and pencils for some details. Fountain pen for the text. Of course all hand done. No tech applied.

Update January 2018: 
I'm happy to introduce Donau's Journey version in English.

The difference with the original print is not only the language but also the enriched frame.
It's printed in high quality vergé paper 160g/m2. Here some photos of the final print:

I'm much happier with this print quality and paper than the previous one therefore I highly recommend the English version.

I had the exclusive chance to meet Jose in person and it made his art and notebook even more special to me, because it literally came to live when he talked about the meanings behind the drawings. For example in the Orange Manuscript, but also on Donaus Journey. This artist and his fantastic notebooks are so very inspirational and yet so approachable, someone please, please make a documentary about him!
You can buy his art also at www.cafe-analog.nl

Me encanta la densidad de simbologías que se pueden encontrar en la lámina. Es un desafío encontrar tantos significados comprimidos en sus casillas. Resulta muy interesante descubrir las correlaciones y coincidencias entre elementos, todo un universo propio de significados.

Estéticamente muy completa, estoy encantado de tenerla en mi salón.

Sometime it becomes very hard to find a well written and well established bog which give you correct and useful information. However, I found this blog and got some relevant information which are really helpful for me.
