Good solid trick with no gimmicks really and one super easy sleight (as in super super easy).
Nothing to "make" just a few things to get which will cost maybe a few bucks at most so yeah, great
mind reading trick. My ONLY negative is how loooooong these tutorials are becoming for something
that literally you can do about five minutes after you know the secret. 43 minutes of video, took
about 25 minutes to get to the reveal with multiple repeats of each steps and explanation which was
too much in my opinion. I like the quick 15 minute video's, that's just me. That's the ONLY reason
I gave four stars, if it had gotten to the meat and got me working quicker five stars. I'd buy this
trick again, just giving my opinion for "get to the point" video's.

Here's a drawing duplication using an old Bob Cassidy idea. It's excellent because the items used
are completely ungimmicked. How do you learn what the spectator has drawn? The method is slick and
ingenious and owes a debt to Tony Corinda, Ted Annemann, and George Anderson.
Chris is a
good teacher, with exceptionally good instructions on how to do the routine. With a little practice,
you'll be killing people with this. At $9.95, its a great value.

One of the best and updated effect on drawing duplication. The method is well polished with
improvements of great mentalists from Corinda,Annemann,Anderson,Bob Cassidy and Luke Jermay. Chris
Rawlins did a great job. But why he speaks so fast? I'm fluent in english, but as a foreigner, I
enjoy to learn the explanation as clear as possible to understand the effect in detail. I could not
hear his comments about B. Cassidy because the audio and words are not clear enough. But the most
annoying issue of the vídeo is the high-volume of the background pop-rock music on the full lenght
explanation. This is nonsense, why do you need music to disturb and make more difficult to
understand the words and explanation of the effect? Penguin could take this as a rule, the
magicians code should advert that explanation audio must have not music on the background!

When I saw the uncut performance, the dirty work was just so obvious to me, that I don't feel really
comfortable doing it. Or at least yet.
I know we magicians notice things that the
layperson won't. But I'm not an expert and my guess on how it was done was correct. I thought about
doing the same kind of thing before coming accross this trick. But the exact handling is well done,
though, and clever. Probably better than what I could have think of I guess.
For the price I
think it's good purchase for people into that and people who want to gather as much info on the
subject as they can.
I saw a lot of people complain about the 43 minutes lenght. I don't,
I mostly enjoy long videos, I find they allow diving into the idea, specially with mentalism.
They're still way quicker than reading a book.. When I buy videos that are too short I always have
the impression that they lack something. I like getting the creator's take on as much elements as
possible. I'll then keep the ones I think are Worth, and let the rest aside.
and practice will make this trick quite good. But IMO, 4 & 5 stars tricks must fool magicians, and
it didn't fool me. But that's just me..

I haven't even done the trick yet and already love it, what a slick method! 5 stars, this trick will
take a little practice but well worth it.....

Chris has created an elegant method to peek what a spectator has written. Using standard office
supply items, this is a straight forward method that can be carried in your pocket to perform at a
There are no gimmicks and it is not very difficult to perform. Priced at
just under $10.00 for the introductory price makes this a no brainer as a purchase.

If you are willing to take the time to practice this enough to get it right, I think that it is
worth the $ and the time to do it.
This is by a master mentalist. Whose favorite effect is drawing duplication. So how can you go wrong
when this involves normal objects. And a move that he has mastered, which is very simple. Those who
said they suspected it, I really just doubt it. This will fool anyone; magi or spectator. The
presentation you add and develop---just act more and more like you are receiving the thoughts
magically, this is what makes it a true miracle. WHERE ELSE CAN YOU FIND SUCH A SIMPLE BUT EXTREMELY
ELEGANT MIND READING DD EFFECT WHERE YOU END SO CLEAN??????
Sorry to say but just get any fundamental mentalism effect about billets and envelopes. This is
really disappointing and it is not worth your money.
This is a very clever impromptu trick ! I just the handling and everything about it. So real and
I would always have them draw something as getting them to write a name to put it in
an envelope and then in a bigger one then revealing it looks a little strange but it's totally
natural for them to draw a picture and you duplicate it !
