It was this effect by Lee Asher that influenced our own style of card magic and spawned a new generation of young magicians performing visual close-up magic.
With three phases beginning with the Silver Surfer - an animated handling to double lift that instantly brings life to the effect, followed by Slap Happy - an awesome way to bring a selected card to top. INSTANTLY! And finally, ending with an Ambitious Explosion , still one of our favorite four-ace productions.
From a young boy developing his talents to his journey to become a magician's magician, it has been Lee's duty to bring the most astonishing visual magic to the public eye. Lee's determination to elevate the art of magic has earned him the respect of his peers. He looks at the art of magic from a real-world perspective and approaches it with skills, very few posses. During the past decade, Lee Asher has taught his style of magic to other magicians worldwide through live lectures and instructional media and literature.
