Here’s a quick idea I had using a blank card. That, and some art school skills.

While waiting to go to brunch I performed this quick effect for Cara. It’s from Tarbell Volume, entitled ‘Jump Up Card’ by Stanley Palm.

After getting Tarbell, I’ve become interested in all sorts of magic I previously thought nothing about. Here’s two short rope effects jammed into one. Cheers.

Day 95—The Incredible Shrinking Man

Here’s a cool idea using the Rub Away Vanish, without the actual vanish, but rather using it as a shrinking card. 

Today I also went to Denis Behr’s lecture at Tannen’s. Blew my mind. Really expanded my hunger to learn more advanced handling techniques.

Just got the rest of my Tarbell’s in! Sooooo glad I finally have them—it should seriously help with my creativity in terms of methods. Thank you, Chris Wiehl, for the recommendation. 

This is my performance of Joe Kranson’s “Vanishing Bird Cage Card” from Volume 4 of Tarbell. Enjoy!
