About the Artist
When I first met Rick Holcombe I knew he thought different. His magic charmed me...And that is hard to do.
I could tell he understood something few people truly get a grasp on: the ability to simplify complex sleights and structures. Follow me here...Rick's not shying away from sleight of hand or those moves that are traditionally spoke of as "difficult." He's not watering down the impact by removing convincers or key deception points... Rather, he's finding ways to get results with less effort. And now you can, too!
For example, take Sly Palm...The sleight is easy. It's easy to hold. It's easy to get into. It's fun to practice and I find myself fiddling with all day long. Are the performance or routines taught self working? No. Please don't misunderstand, there is some advanced stuff in this project. One of the displays will take work to get down the angles.
BUT, the basic Sly Palm is a beginner move! You will be performing it quickly. And if you already have a routine with any kind of retention vanish or bare hand production, then you should be able to place Sly Palm into it immediately!
Further, with some practice, you will use this to fool the snot of out lay people and magicians alike, because it really is clean.
Ricky is a solid teacher and covers every detail at a pace any student can follow. I love Sly Palm because it's great thinking. And when you start great thinking, great advancements to our art will happen, just like Sly Palm.
Support Rick Holcombe. He's given us a gift.
