We’d like to give a warm welcome to our newest staff member at Ellusionist: Eric Jones.
Yeah. That Eric Jones. The master prestidigitator, the man who reinvented and remixed smooth, the creator of Metal, Audio, the Ishkabibble Sandwich and much more beautiful, highly visual magic has joined Ellusionist’s staff as an exclusive artist and a product development liaison.
What’s that mean? Glad you asked. Let’s say there was a magic event. Something like the Dallas IBM Convention 2011, being held next week. And let’s say that Ellusionist has a booth there. Eric would be right behind it, doing demos, meeting people and showing some great magic. He would, for instance, hand out Red Artifice decks, Gold Arcane decks, first edition Black Ghost decks and show off an incredible piece of magic we plan to release later this year.
OK, that’s no hypothetical. That’s exactly what will happen next week at the Dallas IBM Convention, and at more magic conventions around the country over the next few months. (We’re serious about unleashing a new piece of magic, too. This thing is brilliant.)
Not only is Eric a brilliant magician, he is tremendously experienced at spotting talent. He has experience with corporate clients such as Coca-Cola, Merrill Lynch and Hilton, and he’s blown the minds of celebrities such as Kanye West, Dave Matthews and Missy Elliott. He is at the forefront of some pretty big things coming your way over the next few months, and into the new year. If you’re in Dallas, go see him, Peter McKinnon and Jason Brumbalow.
Read more about Eric in an upcoming issue of MagicSeen Magazine (release date July 11). Or check out this podcast we did with him during the release of Metal.
