I'm not sure when it happened.. but some time ago I made an off-hand comment that Paul Osborne wasn't a carpenter/illusion builder.

I didn't mean that he had never built illusions.. he's actually a 2nd generation skilled carpenter, with a full shop and warehouse....

What I meant was that he often mentioned that he "had a guy" who built stuff, or helped him with much of the building that came out of his warehouse. That in no way was meant to imply that "his guy" was the one actually doing all the work.

It would be impossible for someone with no carpentry skills to have drawn the incredible number of illusions he's drawn... specifically the original illusions that I grew up with in the 1980's published in Genii. He still has illusions for sale that come out of his shop to this day. I'd be proud to own one... had I not retired from performing a few years ago to do makeup and FX for film full time.

I worked for Paul for a few years in amusement parks, doing thousands and thousands of shows... and I've never since met anyone so full of wisdom and helpful hints in regard to illusions and performing.

Everyone mis-speaks on occasion. Sounds like it was your turn!

At least you spelled his name right. No one could really draft plans like he does with out actually having been in the shop. I've been in the shop plenty and it's easy to tell if someone else has been there too.

Don't you love the smell of that first cut ...
