This was one of the finest lectures I have attended so far in magic. Garrett Thomas is a fantastic close up worker from Buffalo, NY who really loves magic and performs some of the finest sleight of hand routines I have seen.
During his lecture, he conjured with a Rubik's Cube, a finger ring, coins and cards.
My favorite of the routines he performed was a production of 4 half dollars, vanish of 4 half dollars, reappearance and production of jumbo coins from a small purse. (I believe the routine was called Big Coin, Little Purse).
If you get a chance to catch him, he is worth seeing. He is also very nice and chatted with several of the magicians for quite some time after the lecture ended.
