Creating Magic That is Used Worldwide
I am lucky, I suppose that I am a creative individual. Sometimes my creativity is fresh and exciting, my brain travels at a million lightyears a second and almost can't catch up with itself. To have ideas bubble around your head and fill you with inspiration and motivation is a great thing, not so much if I am asleep and suddenly wake up, or if I am trying to do something, worse still if I am trying to listen to the all important information my wife is telling me about and all that occupies my brain is, 'I wonder if I can do this??!!?'
All in all it is a great thing, I would worry if it wasn't there and I am at my most frustrated when I have a creative block. Having been a contributor and part of the magic community for over a decade I have been lucky enough to meet some fantastic people like David Blaine and Dynamo, Troy and Ben Hanlin, who have all made it big in the real world performing magic.
However, one of my favourite feelings that comes from my creativity is when I work on an effect for a long time, put it out to the magic community and I see or hear about other magicians around the world that are performing this material. To have other people choose to use your ideas over someone else's, when they are paid to put on the best performance they can is truly humbling.
I was sent a couple of shots of a couple at a recent wedding a magician colleague Steve Rowe was booked to entertain. He used my Polo mint trick at the top table for the bride and groom and got these great shots. Thank you Steve, for not only sending me these great photos of you getting great reactions but for trusting in my magic enough that you chose it to be in your top table set!
If you are looking to book some magic for your wedding then please click here to enquire. Don't hesitate as dates go very quickly and it would be a shame if I could not be there to help make your day that little bit more magical!
