In Prison, Learning Magic by Mail

A deck of cards cut from milk cartons. A wand made with medical tape. How a group of inmates learned “the magic of magic.”

Kris Nevling has really good chops now. His muscle pass is pretty phenomenal too. In prison with all that time to practice, even without the best props, you can just imagine. Just as some prisoners are super fit. Magic is so much about practice, so with all that time to workout or practice.
