Mount Fuji (富士山, Fujisan) is with 3776 meters Japan’s highest mountain. It is not surprising that the nearly perfectly shaped volcano has been worshiped as a sacred mountain and experienced big popularity among artists and common people throughout the centuries. Mount Fuji Wiki

Mount Fuji is an attractive volcanic cone and a frequent subject of Japanese art especially after 1600, when Edo (now Tokyo) became the capital and people saw the mountain while traveling on the Tōkaidō road. Mount Fuji Travel Guide

Mount Fuji, with its graceful conical form, has become famous throughout the world and is considered the sacred symbol of Japan. Among Japanese there is a sense of personal identification with the mountain, and each summer thousands of Japanese climb to the shrine on its peak. Mount Fuji Facts

Kinetic Quest – Art For Sale

Well, my artwork finally made it off the screen and into the real world.

I took the big step and got Kinetic Quest (the artwork that kicked off a series of Daily Abstract artworks on DesignerDon.com, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest) printed.

Kinetic Quest is one of my favourite abstract geometric pieces that I’ve produced so far. I don’t know whether it’s the colours, the shapes, or a combination that give this piece that ‘certain something’… The X factor that makes me want to stop and stare. It has a calming effect on me. A really nice piece, if I do say so myself.

In any case, Kinetic Quest was sent to print and has now arrived back, being listed on a hastily put together Etsy Store and my own long-standing, but barely used these days – Ebay account.

Links to the stores where you can buy Kinetic Quest are after the gallery below:

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Simple_Masonry_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

 

Kinetic Quest is available as an A4 Print, an A5 Greeting Card (with fancy Gold Envelope & cellophane sealy-bag, no less!) and an A6 Postcard (with a tidy little white envelope).

Printed on high quality paper/card, with matt lamination to fend off light reflection.

Ultra rare & strictly Limited Edition, with only 50 of each available in the whole world.

Get yourself over to one of these links to buy and please tell your friends, family, colleagues and internet followers about them. It would really mean the world to me to get shot of these and have enough to make another run to the printers with a new limited edition design.

Ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/dchfd/m.html

Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/711041025/kinetic-quest-designer-don-original 

Who knows, if it goes really well I might even build a Designer Don Shop for a range of great products… 

All the best and happy shopping!

The launch promo is a digital collage and photo manipulation, with a little digital art and finessing thrown in, to create a prominent, memorable image that people would enjoy for its fun nature, but also take away the fact that it’s a professional outfit that is aiming to make a big impact.
