This is my performance of Liam Montier’s “Lovely Jubilee”, which is a variation of a version of an Alex Elmsley effect.

This is a very fascinating way to present Mathieu Bich’s effect, Watermark using paper towels, rather than a napkin.

This is my performance of Cameron Francis’ “Joking Around” at a great house party at our friends’ new apartment. Great company, great time, and great magic. Cheers.

This is an interesting application of Jim Steranko’s “Gonesville,” originally published in Genii Magazine in the April 1961 edition. Steranko only really provides one application for the move, but with some concepting around it I was able to generate this interesting idea. Right now I’m doing a lot of mulling over Jim’s work, specifically Steranko on Cards.

This is my performance of Cameron Francis’ wonderful effect, “Moves.” I’m a big fan of the construction of this trick, as well the concept for why one would perform it.
