Sinful (Book and DVD) by Wayne Houchin - Book
From magician Wayne Houchin (Thread, Stigmata and Control) and graphic artist Josh Funk comes Sinful: A Graphic Novel. A striking new vision of the celebrated Quarter Through Soda Can routine that became one of the most talked about effects from the first season of Criss Angel: Mindfreak.
Not just an instruction manual, Sinful offers the reader the rare opportunity to peer into the creative process behind this routine.
Set in a fictional nightclub called Hendricks, the novel opens with a stylized re-imagining of a live performance and then allows the reader the opportunity to learn the full routine from Houchin's personal notebook. This one of a kind learning experience offers a look at the evolutionary process of creating - exploring other moves, concepts and ideas that didn't make it into the final handling.
New ideas and alternative moves are discussed and taught in detail. Also included is a performance DVD that features live performances and an interview with Wayne Houchin conducted by Paul Harris.
Sinful: A Graphic Novel is for the magician interested in learning a truly powerful piece of organic magic and for the artist interested in the process of creating, not just copying.
