LEGO Disney Minifig Series Dot Codes

We love LEGO’s collectable minifigs! They are sold in blind polybags which make hunting down the specific LEGO characters we hope to add to our collection so much fun.

It’s been a year since our gallery show in Palm Desert, California, and the past year has brought many, many changes to the The Suboken Project.

Jumping Atop Boulders To Cross A Rushing River

2014 has gifted The Suboken Project with some new developments and opportunities.

One such opportunity is the consolidation the Suboken.com portfolio website with the Suboken Project blog into a single web destination. As the saying goes, please excuse our dust while this transition is in progress.

Another timely announcement for you is that In A Place: Series 2 prints will be on sale this Friday, 4th of April at the Venus Studios Art Walk and Bazaar. We’re offering a Mother’s Day special on the prints if you’re looking to buy something extra special for Mom. Speaking of mothers, Calista and I will be bringing our special little guest with us on Friday as well and would love for you to stop by and say hello. The art walk runs from 2:00 to 7:00.

Venus Studios is located at 41801 Corporate Way, Palm Desert, CA 92260
