"One of the greatest effects I do." -Matt Johnson

You won't find a more powerful and EASIER way to read minds.

Even if you've never done mentalism before, you'll be reading-minds like a pro. It's the perfect trick for magicians looking to add some mentalism.

PROFESSIONALS: You can reveal peoples' thoughts any way you like. Matt Johnson likes to draw what they're thinking, but it's completely up to you! Instantly resets, packs flat. A true worker.

Magic has the potential to affect people deeply, but it's rare we see "tricks" presented that way. Matt Johnson doesn't hold back a thing when he performs, and you're going to see why he loves "Dark Arts" so much when you watch the full uncut performances included on Dark Arts.

Learn how to leave people feeling like they witnessed a miracle.

"YOU WILL LOVE IT" -Matt Johnson

You can pick up #1 Coin Envelopes (which measure 2.25" x 3.5" and open on the short side) at your local office supply store.

This trick is ok. it's not bad but the whole envelope thing is a bit strange. There are many many peaks and billet tears out there that are much more practical and makes more sense. Plus this trick can be a bit angle sensitive.

Awesome! Report this review

I already got this effect from Mett mello's dvd modern mentalism vol2.

The method used is this trick is so easy. yet, when performed right will never fail on you and even when you have this "picasso" standing in front of you and you just get the most markeble parts of his drawing right they are still impressed!

Defenitly worth the money!

Powerful & Cool Method Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2014
I've been looking for something just like this for months now. I've watched a lot of other video demo's of other similar effects. I wanted something that seemed Impossible. Matthew does a really nice job explaining this, along with some of his own touches. When I saw the method, i thought, I've seen that before, but didn't realize it when I watched the trailer. I had even already bought the little envelopes months ago. You can really milk this; add lots of fun or mystery to it & just really concentrate on Performance. I didn't realize it was a method I was already familiar with, from studying mentalism for a few yrs now, but it was still worth the investment, for Matthews little extra touches. There is a 'move' involved, which I will not mention, as it will expose the secret, but this 'move', will take some work, in my opinion, for it to be smooth & go unnoticed by any careful observers. Then again, good audience management will eliminate any probs. For sure a nice routine. Seems absolutely impossible. One can really play with this to make it even stronger. Recommended to anyone new or fairly new to Mentalism. I just have to now order some business cards, haha. Thanks for sharing this Matt Mello.

This trick is very clever, but I never use it. I really like the set-up and the idea of the gimmick. I just don't use it a lot, but it's worth getting it if you would use it.

Dark Arts, very cool close up Drawing Duplication Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2014
As somewhat of a drawing duplication fanatic, I have purchased a number of products with different methods. I really like Dart Arts in every way. This is a terrific 40 minute download that shows the full presentation twice (with two different audiences) a detailed, step-by-step explanation of the method with very clear instructions, and lots of tips for handling.

Using the handling taught, the spectator can fully examine the envelope and cards at the start and take the envelope and cards (their drawing and yours, each on a separate card) home with them.

Very cool effect, and wonderful instruction!

Super Cool! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2014
This is pretty to easy to get down and would suggest it be used by intermediate to advanced performers. I like it for several reasons:

1. It is easy to construct and doesn't take too much time to do so.
2. It is great for performers working on their presentation skills.
3. Mr. Johnson is a great teacher plus his tips on it will create something people will probably talk about long after the performance.
4. It packs small and can play big.
5. Good advice on audience management.

Thanks to Mr. Mello and Penguin for sharing this.

Pretty good. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 9th, 2014
I realize that the presenter was adding his own "improvements". I came up with a few more on my own. I think this one is a little trickier than it needs to be, but decent Ideas from Matt.

Hope you like it, but not for me Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 5th, 2015
This technique is clever, and it is explained very well on the video.
However, it's not going into my repertoire for a few reasons.

Too many contrived moves, too much patter, to long, too much explaining required.
You can see this in the example videos when he is performing for the spectators, as they look a little confused and the trick seems to go on too long.
(Although, truth be told, the specs appear to be about as sharp as a bowling ball.)

I'll stick with a simple center tear, simpler, faster, and similar effect.
But, three stars for a a well produced video presentation and a clever technique.

Matt Mello's Dark Arts on steroids Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2014
Matthew Johnson is one of my all time FAVORITE performers and thinkers in magic. Well, he's done it again. He's taken an already great effect by Matt Mello and added his brilliant touches to it.

JUust order it and blow people away!

Very good! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 4th, 2014
Ya never know when your $5-$10 is spent if you're really getting something you'll use or not......but so far I must admit, my penguin small-ball purchases have been very good and this is no exception!

Once you make this up, you will likely use it forever.....at least I intend to.
It's clever, it's easy and it blows people away. I bought it just yesterday, spent 20 minutes or so on the gimmick....and have already performed it twice.... a great reaction both times!

This is one that is worth more than its price to me.....

Enjoy!
