Street Magic is a cross between magazines like Maxim, FHM, GQ, and Thrasher with a magic flavor that makes us stand WAY out from the crowd. We are fresh, up-to-date, and from the streets.
We don’t BS, we don’t play politics, and we are in your face with hard-hitting articles, features, reviews, and in-depth interviews with the hottest magicians around. If some piece in our magazine doesn’t get you pissed off or thinking, then we’ve not done our job.
We are here to provoke intelligent thought, logical discourse, and to positively influence magicians of all levels into thinking outside the proverbial “magic” box, and start pushing our art to the next level.
SM is a magazine for the thinking magician—for artists who don’t want to fall in line and be like everyone else, but want to stand out from the crowd and be proud of who they are, where they are going, what they accomplish, and the legacy they leave behind. SM is about you and we prove that by featuring magicians of all levels. You don’t have to have been dead for 70 years to get the cover.
We are about the rising leaders in magic—the ones who entertain on the street, stage, and screen today, in the near future, and in the days to come. And we are for all the magic shops—the places that got us into magic in the first place. We are not about ad space; we are about content and producing a magazine that increases the public’s interest in our art.
But most of all, we are totally unpredictable. Period. You’ll never know what’s going to happen next in SM—and that’s what makes us really stand out.
