I am a career performer but it is less commonly known that I am also a visual artist and this is where I will be sharing the secrets of coping with those delicious disciplines.
In the late 1990s I co-owned an art gallery and was part of an elite network of very well-known artists. In early 2002 I was faced with making a career-focus decision and the spotlight called out more loudly than the brushes. Despite that, it was in that same year that I created a tutorial for my art with bleach that went viral at 5 million + hits, at last count.
You see, I never stopped creating.
I never publicized that I also created all of the Professor Phelyx design work, including branding, marketing, posters, sets, props, costuming, and merchandise. In fact, I did that kind of work for a few other stage acts as well... quietly.
This is a place that allows me to create more loudly than I have in nearly twenty years, and I have a new and ambitious list to accomplish. I can really, really use your support here.
Presently, I am creating a multi-media resource "book" that is designed for speakers, teachers, and performers using all of my experience and insights as a mentalist magician of several decades.
I want to create a full body of 2-D artworks for exhibition in my signature medium and style.
I have outlined my NEW SHOW and am excited to create it (and all of its small cogs and sprockets like props, sets, branding, merchandise). This effort is the culmination of more than a decade of preparation. My every intention is for this to be my masterwork. I will share secret elements of the plan and process with my supporters here at BuyMeACoffee!
I want to share all of this and will appreciate your support and friendship. I want to offer perks ranging from heartfelt gratitude to original artworks and even producer credits on Playbills and the official websites!
NOW OFFERING MEMBERSHIPS WITH PERKS!
For my first 12 Phelyx Coffee Club Members, I wanted to celebrate with a little extra. I have gone through archives and have unearthed all of the old promotional ephemera (postcards, handbills, stickers, and cards). I was able to assemble 13 complete sets. One of those has already been sent to my grandsons, but one the last twelve are going to be mailed to each of the FIRST TWELVE!
Have a look at the Membership for some of my other plans!
