The gimmick and the pad work as a dry erase board.

This is great because to enhance the whole illusion the magician can indeed draw on the gimmick and clean it afterwards.

Also me and my team made it possible to release the gimmick without any finger movement AND with all fingers into view.

Everything combined with the concept of drawing on a pad, really makes this a wonderful piece of visual magic.

What is the reset time like? Can it be reset in front of a spectator?

I'm pretty sure I know how this is done and don't see how to clean up without a lot of misdirection, because you obviously cant offer the gimmick or pad for inspection, and the spectators are going to want to do so. Otherwise, this is a nice combination of some fairly common items used by magicians.

This does not look to me like the kind of trick you would do for an audience that would demand to see the pad.

You can´t reset in from the of the spectator of course.

The reset time is instant, if you don´t want to write on the gimmick. If you do write it is a matter of a few seconds only.

After having performed this trick so many times now the audience does NOT want to examine the pad, or the card.

I have never had any audience Demand anything, and if they did, I would simply say, "No", these are my props and they are very expensive.

Your statement shows your lack of knowledge in performing magic, and experience in front of an audience.

The trick looks good in the demo, but I think if the card was a black and white card backed card, like the drawing it would be better magically. The face could be a regular card, so with some blank back cards, in my opinion, it would be a stronger effect.

Looks a bit like a smaller version of Mark Southworth's Pop Art:

Thank you for adding to conversation Bill. I think we all learned something today.

Is the bicycle style back pre drawn / printed on the pad?
Can the back design be customised to other brands like tally ho / Phoenix etc?

Thanks for the information the board is dry erase ! I agree with bill the card color should match the color of the drawing for a stronger visual effect makes sense.

Already read page 1; I don't post anything without reading a full thread.
So, my question still stands.
I know it's dry erase, but to me it looks as though the basic bicycle style is already 'pre-printed', and then a few lines of dry erase pen are drawn afterward to make it look convincing?

Don't think you can compare the tricks. From what I see in the trailer, this is just kinda a regular f**p c**d. In the trick you mentioned must go on a lot more inside the pad, because of course the depth of the deck has to hide anywhere. In this trick here you don't have this problem.

Can the gimmick easily be changed to a different card on the face/does it come with a few different reveals?

I disagree that the real card should be an exact match of the drawing, people would then assume the card was just stuck to the pad and they assumed it was a drawing. If, on the other hand, it was a Ghost deck back, that might work. I don't think it matters anyway, you want a visual moment and the color appearing does that.

Yes, you can actually place any carat the face of the gimmick, so yes.

There is even an handling with a signed card which I will soon reveal for Sketch owners.

How durable is the gimmick? Will it need to be replaced after repeated use?
