I learned a few coin tricks when I was starting out but I was more into Mentalism. Especially psychokinetic stuff like spoon bending and animation effects. Coin magic was always a fidget thing for me. Just something I play around when I watch videos or read books.
A year later, I became a full blown Mentalism guy and did quite a few shows for fun and allowances. Sooooooo middle fingers up for those who say I can only perform in front of a camera :)
I KNOW I KNOW! IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE ME DOING MENTALISM BUT I DID!!!!!
It is 2017 and I have been doing magic for 4 years and I spent half of them doing Mentalism. I may be perceived as an east coast move monkey kinda Asian kid but my favorite effects and routines to perform to other people are still Mentalism :3
PS: After 2 years of playing around Mentalism, I published a 300-page Mentalism book which has 20+ effects and routines in it. It is not available anymore but I will soon come out with “best of” kinda book lol
