What DOES a magician supposed to look like?
When I was a mere lad, I thought that magicians were supposed to look something like Mandrake (of comic book fame). I also thought that Dante looked like a magician. Yet how many famous magicians, if you never saw them perform anything and only saw their photograph, or simply saw them in the street, would look like magicians?
How about Malini?
Thurston? (He looked like a banker.)
Don Alan? (Shoe salesman)
Channing Pollock? (Movie star.)
Goshman? (Deli owner)
Ammar? (Ad man)
Daryl? (Ski instructor)
Mac King? (Scoutmaster)
Burger? (in the cast of "Fiddler on the Roof?)
Vernon? (Retired military man)
David Blaine (Hip-hop rocker)
In short, how you look is far less important than what you do, how you do it, and what your dominant attitude seems to be.
Max Maven has a great voice and a forceful presence; and he works hard at creating a distinct and slightly strange but compelling persona. This is great for identification purposes; however, it can be limiting and end up being a curious curse.
Aleister Crowley was certainly unique and unmistakably identifiable; He was in a class by himself; however, central casting would have been hard pressed to categorize him as anything other than what he worked to become.
So, my advice is don't try to look like somebody you are not...
