Nicholas Lawrence LIVE: Sunday Nov 20th @7:00pm Eastern. (Penguin LIVE) Impossible-looking, visually-strong magic with common objects. SUPPORT LIVE MAGIC.

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7638

"Nicholas empowers you with the tools needed for some of the most direct visual magic. Clever and creative."- Garrett Thomas

"There are very few people that have caught my attention quite the same way Nicholas Lawrence has. He's annoyingly good. I religiously follow his feed and love seeing his creations that constantly leave magicians (including myself) wishing we had half the creativity this man has. Pay close attention. I predict massive things."- Pete Turner

"Nicholas’ work consistently delivers beautiful, highly visual impact effects on the level that all of us grew up wanting magic to have…His designs create what REAL magic would look like…If you have a chance to get an insight into his mind and approach, I strongly suggest you take it."- Jason Latimer

What will he teach?
Missing Piece - An unexpected torn and restored effect with a twist. A card is torn into multiple pieces and a single piece is separated and isolated by the spectator. Restore all the remaining pieces, leaving the chosen piece behind...creating an impossible souvenir.

Flash Flight - A quick, visual torn and restored card effect where a torn corner visually fly's from the top of the deck and attaches itself to the spectator's card, all while held in their hand.

The Fool - After having a card chosen and lost into the pack, remove a random card... Embarrassed to have found the wrong card, you go for plan B. Have the spectator look through the deck but before they know it, you appear to have been holding the card the whole time. Also covers his modern Shake Change & Card to Mouth subtleties.

Grilled Ease - This is a sandwich effect that utilizes a New principle to Vanish & Appear a signed card between 2 jokers. It's an easy-to-make, long lasting gimmick that can achieve what magnets or elastic could, plus more, with only using what you have at home.

BackMasked - An impromptu spooky card revelation disguised in the audio of a live recording moments earlier.

Shrinking/Growing Phone, Deck, etc. - This is a very Easy and Visual shrinking or growing illusion with everyday objects for everyday situations, a Great Visual opening effect.

Ring through fingers - This is a visual offbeat ring through fingers routine using only your finger ring.

DPK - A new principle using PK rings to accomplish some very clean and devious effects that are sure to get you thinking... color changing ring, ring thru finger, On Off.

On Off finger - Nicholas' first release, a visual and believable removal of your finger using your finger ring as a divider. A revived classic that fits well into any ring routine.

3 Fly - This is a fun and visual 3 fly routine using standard coins, with New and inspiring coin moves.

Who is he?
From Buffalo, New York, Nicholas has been obsessed with magic for 18 years, though he has only been publishing magic & consulting for 3. He specializes in creating visual card, coin & organic close up magic. He lives to inspire performers around the world, to try new things, and add hyper visual moments to their repertoires. He has published 11 DVDs and over 30 effects in total, with much more to come. Nicholas is also the Founder & co-owner of Sensor-Magic with long life friend and fellow Magician Rian Lehman.

I thought this lecture was great! I'd already purchased flash flight as an individual trick so I didn't know if I'd get my money's worth but boy did I. The backmasked trick alone was worth the price of the lecture. Nicholas really brought A-game stuff with ring magic color change and I especially liked the phone shrinking trick. This stuff was highly visual. I recommend it strongly.

Thanks for the review, MagicBrent. Just ordered it, and plan to watch it in the next day or two.

From a creator I would have expected much more effort on crediting. The best thing in the lecture was just transfering an idea of Peter Kane, currently popularized by Steve Valentine, to a phone. The original use was also mentioned as apparently original and if I didn't miss it neither of two were mentioned.

Also some of the material were clearly invented for the sake of inventing stuff. For example the sandwich routine. You can do exactly the same effect with totally invisible gimmick and instead you make something totally different just for the sake of being different to achieve the same effect.

The work on ring was interesting though
