the great houdini...a very nice and strong detailed drawing and a tribute to someone who changed the way magic and trickery is even today...brilliant work!

Wow!

Brilliant work!

Excellent work! Thanks for the bio on The Great Houdini. It seems that I read he died of peritonitis after being punched in the gut by a drunken braggart--Harry had an inflamed appendix that burst when the blow was delivered. In the days prior to Penicillin, peritonitis was a certain death sentence (it is still very, very serious). Your work is sensitive and accurate, beautifully rendered.

Artist's Description

Harry Houdini (born Erik Weisz; March 24, 1874 - October 31, 1926) was a Hungarian-American magician and escapologist, stunt performer, actor and film producer.

On the left Houdini is performing his "challenge handcuff" act; it was in escapes, not magic, that Houdini would find his great success. On the right is Houdini's most famous escape, the Chinese Water Torture Cell. Houdini affectionately referred to it as The Up Side Down. Contrary to common belief Houdini did not die performing this act. In the center are the Famous Mirror handcuffs, a custom set of cuffs made as a special challenge for Houdini by the London Daily Mirror in 1904. It was reported that 4000 people and more than 100 journalists turned out for the much-hyped event at London's Hippodrome theater. The escape attempt dragged on for over three hours....

About Steven Paul Carlson

Steven Paul Carlson

ARTIST STATEMENT: My goal as a portrait artist has been to show something deeper than just a human or animal likeness but to reveal life, living, and breathing even thinking. To capture life so vivid that you expect the head to turn, eyes to blink or the hand to gesture. History: Art has been my life for as far back as I can remember. I have no formal art education.

After about 5 years with ART Enterprise I went freelance and have remained a freelancer for most of my...
