The magician seated at the table performing, is Richard Turner from the USA. He is considered one of the best in the world with a pack of playing cards. He has even fooled Pen and Teller! He is also BLIND and does his magic by touch!! AN AMAZING MAN!!

Magic Conventions often have a “Dealers Room” where effects and magic supplies are sold. Though I am not usually a “dealer”, at this convention (Gold Coast Magic Convention 2019) I had a table and effects from both my “Lecture” and “Gala show act” available for purchase.
With the man who created the “floating table illusion”. His name is Losander. Many of you have seen me doing this effect over the years as I have developed 4 different presentations for it. It was great to talk to him and personally thank him for such a beautiful piece of magic!
I have been on the Gold Coast since Thursday afternoon working at “The Gold Coast Magic Convention”. The Convention was a great opportunity to Learn, Perform, Lecture, and catch up with friends and colleagues.
There was some lovely feedback on my work. Thanks to the artists below for letting me post their testimonials:
