Says David, "As a kid I had very little, and the world seemed hard. I hoped I could be strong enough to survive almost anything. So when I saw a picture of Houdini chained to the side of a building, I was drawn to this beautiful image of struggle, and it stayed with me forever."
For the record, I think David Blaine is terrific, and the closest performer we have today to Houdini. I also think he produces some of the most stunning magic posters in the business.
