First Asian Magicians to Grace the Cover of Magicseen Magazine

Magicseen magazine is Europe’s largest magic magazine and we have been featured in several articles in the past. Both Ning & I have had individual features and our “The Impossible Record” world record act was also covered in the previous issue.

The magician who was on the last cover of magicseen was none other than the living legend David Copperfield. Incidentally, he is the first ever American magician ever to be featured on magicseen magazine. Being a U.K. magazine, their natural focus is to spolight European magic talent.


This upcoming issue (Nov 2009), Ning and I have the distinction of being the first ever Asian illusionists to be featured on magicseen! This is a tremendous honour to be chosen among all the other great magic talent in this part of the world.

Presenting our cover!


The Nov 2009 issue will only be out in a few weeks but we wanted to reveal the cover on our blogs for our readers first!

We really love the cover and think it is reflective of our urban styles. (Observant readers will note that we have used this photo in a different form before.) We also wanted to create a cover that has never been seen on magicseen before. Ning holding the magazine in her hand is reminiscent of Davinci’s never-ending reflection and is a ‘magicial’ visual effects in itself.

For this issue, we did one of the most in-depth interviews ever and went into detail of our work in the last 12 months. Being a magic trade magazine, we discussed our approach to our mega illusions and performances as well as our stage characters and onstage relationship.

I also shared an original illusion design in the Masterclass section of the magazine that teaches magic effects and techniques.

Magicseen has grown by leaps and bounds over the 5 years and is a fantastic alternative to non-US magic trade magazines for the international magic community. We are so proud to put Singapore on the map in another way once again!

Thanks to everyone from the magicseen team who made this happen!
