AUGUST 2018 - THE UPDATES

IT'S SUMMER. IT'S HOT. SO ARE THE UPDATES!

Welcome to yet another month of Magic On The Go as we slowly build this amazing online database to overflowing with 100% usable commercial magic and lessons in chicanery.

Lot's of goodies to play with, all gradually added over the course of the month.

New moves for Nikko, so you can perform a repeat vanishing hanky without ever going to your pocket.

We start a massive teach-in on the beloved classic COLO(U)R CHANGE move, and how to present a COLO(U)R CHANGE card sequence on stage, just like Nate Leipzig! I'll detail basic and advanced handlings, some Valentine additions and at the end, if you all eat your vegetables, I'll tip my SPOTLIGHT CHANGE, something I've held very close to my vest for many years... spectator names any card and the face card of the deck morphs into that very card. Designed to be done in a spotlight with the audience burning you every move, it's the perfect end to a wonderful and visual display of pure card magic.

Also this month we start what will become a MASSIVE teach-in (and you know how I can get) on the killer CARDS ACROSS card plot, with some methods and concepts that I'm pretty sure you haven't seen before. This trick alone was good enough for Leipzig to close his entire act and for Potassy to feature on live TV. It’s truly worth the study.

That's right, cards stuff, silk stuff, parlor too, I'll be looking at Oswald Rae's Bending Glass Illusion, and showing how I came up with my own presentation and handling for it. You'll be glad to hear we have yet another installment of the great CHOCOLATE BOX routine and couple of other surprises too... along with a special guest...

Yep lots of stuff for all levels, so stick with us on Magic On The Go and I promise you'll be able to. ASTONISH - ANYTIME - ANYWHERE

  • THE S.V. D.S.

    I’ve been working on deck switches lately, as I need a bunch of them in my show, and by accident I discovered a rather easy and absolutely disarming switch. It’s easy, off-beat and invisible, and I’m sharing it with you.

    I’m a big believer that any switch has to be choreographed into the spec...
