For the past three years, I’ve been pouring an increasingly large amount of my creativity into writing projects. The first of these projects is a novel I’ve been adapting from a movie idea I created during film school. The weight of writing this novel has been heavy, however, and about 18 months ago I decided I needed to supplement my writing with something much lighter in tone. Producing this blog went a long way in satisfying that need. However, my family’s love of creating with LEGO inspired another story concept that snowballed into a personally ambitious writing project.
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.
The first half of 2014 sustained a strong interest for the In A Place project. We sold quite a few limited edition prints from Series Two and Series Three. We were also able to get the In A Place photography/essay book into more peoples hands in search of support to finally get the book published.
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

Today was the second day hanging the show. I knew I had dropped off a good number of art pieces for the exhibit, forty-two pieces to be exact. (I’ll steal a smile with Douglas fans, and don’t forget to bring a towel.) But walking into the space this afternoon with almost everything now hung on the walls made this whole adventure all the more real.
The moment that shifted my perspective was when these letters were revealed on the wall.
If you noticed that The Cartographer’s Dilemma is mysteriously absent from this post, there’s a reason. It’s in the show, but there’s something additional involved in its presentation. I’ll leave you with a coy hint, an update is long over due for The Cartographer’s Dilemma page on the website.
