Hey kids! :-D

Haven't posted here in a while. Hope you're all good! Smile

Anyway I saw this and though it might be of interest to some. Seriously it's short but well worth a read:

Excellent article,
this shows what a deep thinker David really is, despite what some of his detractors may say.

David is actually one of the most thoughtful performers in the art.

You're Welcome guys! Smile

Like you've all said David puts a lot of thought into performance and the art itself.

Inspiring thoughts that can lead the pathway to succeed and enhance the art of magic.

These old photo's are some of the points that David was referring too.

The cups and balls more than any other feat caught the fancy of artists. Hundreds of woodcuts, prints, and paintings show it being performed through the years. Hieronymus Bosch (c 1460-1516) made the most famous painting. As his magician diverts the audience a thief takes advantage of the moment to lift an astonished spectator's purse. Joseph of Ulm included a cups and balls performer in a drawing showing the influences of the moon. His 1405 manuscript is in the library of the University of Tuebingen. Another fifteenth-century artist made a woodcut of a similar scene for his Wirkungen der Planeten, which was issued about 1470.
