I loved that Brett.Very good way of using the Svenpad.

International shipping first class - during the busy holidays - is rough.

Over 99% of the international orders are getting to their destinations but it's taking 3 weeks or more in some cases.

I guarantee delivery and if an order doesn't get there I will resend and upgrade the shipping at my expense.

Orders go out within 24 hours As long as I have inventory.

Thanks again and thrilled when you guys are thrilled!

Brett,
Your new concept in the video is absolutely brilliant. Thanks for sharing . The ending of the routine came as a huge surprise and it was again amazing.

Dave




which video ?


Here you go - taken at Venice Beach this past weekend.

Still working on it so it is at a rough stage, but I like the idea of using blank pages.

Also I showed the female spectator the all blank pages at the END but the camera missed it... and I was using the new non-gimmicked SvenPad which I switched out in my back pocket:





O K.... That was pretty awesome. Great idea.

As you can see in the video (which was really the 1st time testing the concept) I am toying with the idea of making all the non-f pages blanks, while the f pages all have a repeated simple drawing + a word on them written in pencil.

I then label the pad on the outside cover "50 Popular Doodle Images."

I introduce the pad to a group and explain that there are 50 images on the pad - and ask one person to close their eyes as I show all the images to the rest of the group. I ask the group to not react as they see the images. I then openly flip the pages slowly showing all pages as blanks - letting the group in on the secret. Next I ask the participant to open their eyes and hold the pad in the left hand, opening with the right thumb as others turn away so they have privacy.

I then put the SvenPad away and do a drawing duplication first - holding when done over the head of the participant as they describe the image in their mind. Then I ask them if a word comes to mind - but not to say it out loud.

I then write the word holding it to my stomach and hiding it - then revealing what I wrote AFTER they say it out loud.

The spectator is amazed since I picked up twice on their thoughts - but the kicker is asking the surrounding audience to tell them the "secret" - that ALL the pages were in fact BLANKS.

As a prover I can then take out the gimmicked SvenPad and flip the pages to show all blanks - or switch (in a back or jacket breast pocket) with the brand new NON GIMMICKED POCKET SIZE SvenPads - and hand the pad out for inspection.

The non-gimmicked SvenPads are now available here: http://www.phoenixmentalist.com/the-svenpad/


(I did this last night at a fancy restaurant dinner party and one spectator at the end screamed and ran to an outside veranda- screamed loudly again to the street below, then he walked back inside with eyes rolling)

Curious why a pencil this time, rather than gel ink.

To avoid any possible see-through.

The gel ink I recommend is perfect - but with all blank pages I wanted to make sure there was zero possibility of anything showing through in strong lighting. In my testing pencil works the best Smile

These pads are really nice, Brett. It's great to know we have you as a resource out there for this, and being a non-handy human being, I am very glad I don't have to make any up from this point onward.

Just thought of a simple idea... I'm sure it's probably been in someone's mind before: You use this at a wedding or for two in love, etc... in the style of Anniversary Waltz. So you have two pads that you say you collected things others have drawn. You've made a duplicate pad with the same stuff but put the images in different places from the first pad. You show both pads around to demonstrate all the various choices.

Now you bring up the couple and put them back to back. They are each to open their pads and then draw what they randomly saw. You know where this is going. In the end the couple has drawn the same thing.

Of course, if you want to make it a bit magicky, they end up drawing a heart or a rose or some other love symbol. I would stick with having them draw something not in the genre... just a regular drawing.

Anyway, just a quick thought.

A huge massive New Years hug for Greg Arce - who has generously shared countless ideas on routining and slaying any audience with your SvenPads!

I get many emails with ideas. One from Australia today said he was using his for an ideal solution to his signature mental epic effect.

Here is the Facebook group link - the group is not yet private although that could change. Tons of Sven Ideas here:
