Hi friends:

Do you know if David Copperfield´s "Graffiti Wall" has been released in the market? Could I buy this effect? If I could... where and how much money?

Thanks in advance.

All the best magic,

I don't think its been released as the "graffiti wall." but have seen the same effect and method with a chalk board performed. I do not believe Copperfield has rights to the trick only in performance.

The chalk board effect can be purchased from Don Wayne. While similar, the tricks are different.

From the first time I saw david perform that effect years ago, I began to realize that he had a way of really connecting to his audience with illlusions they could relate to. It is just a great example of real "modern" style in illusions.

I myself connected with it immediately just over television. I can imagine his live audience connected even stronger.

This illusion has strong appeal!

Was this a Don Wayne creation?

I think I saw this years ago. Is this the one where it was a mental effect, a bit like a mental epic or something. He had graffiti written on the wall, then pulled out an envelope that had, apparently, been in full view and read off previous predictions and they were correct? If that is the one, I believe it was Don Wayne. Great effect but if you watch closely, as a magician,it is not hard to catch the secret.

Your out of your mind if you want to rip this one off. I doubt it would every be released for purchase as this is one of the most impractical illusions ever. Sure it's a great trick but the "secrect" is more than you would imagine. The actual prop is huge unless you travel with a semi... really. On a simpler note... Chalet Magic makes a nice version of Mental Epic that's practical and reasonably priced. What's next ... Flying??

You might want to check out Hocus Pocus for "Postcards from the Road". There is a new version advertised, and apparaently only eight units will be available. A little bit pricey but the effect is exactly the same as what you are looking for.

Thank everyone, specially Lee Alex, ´cause Postcards from The Road could be what I was looking for.

Thanks again.
