Crafting Your Image: Insights from Magician Jono Blythe

As a performer, whether you're a musician, a comedian, a magician, or any other type of entertainer, your image is incredibly important. It's not just about what you wear, but also how you present yourself on stage and to your audience. Your image can help you stand out, connect with your audience, and establish your own unique identity.


When you're just starting out, it's easy to fall into the trap of copying other performers. You may think that wearing a certain type of clothing or mimicking a certain style will make you more successful. But the truth is, in order to truly connect with your audience, you need to find your own identity and create your own image.


When I started out as a magician, I followed the same path. I wore black and navy suits that weren't very comfortable, and I copied tricks and styles from other performers. But as I began to develop my own style and perform more frequently, I realised that I needed to establish my own identity. I started to experiment with different colours and styles of clothing, and eventually found a look that felt more authentic and comfortable for me.


This process of finding my own image wasn't easy. It required a lot of trial and error, and there were times when I felt like I wasn't making any progress. But the more I experimented and explored, the more confident I became in my own identity as a performer.


Now, I know that my image is an important part of who I am as a magician. When I'm performing, I feel more comfortable and confident because I'm wearing clothes that reflect my personality and style. And because I'm not trying to be someone else, I'm able to connect more deeply with my audience.


As the late great Paul Daniels once said, "you are the best one of you there is." This is a sentiment that I firmly believe in. Your image as a performer should be a reflection of who you are and what you bring to the stage. It's not about conforming to a certain stereotype or imitating someone else. It's about finding your own identity and expressing it in a way that feels authentic to you.


In conclusion, as a performer, your image is incredibly important. It's not just about what you wear, but also how you present yourself to your audience. By finding your own identity and creating your own image, you can stand out, connect with your audience, and establish yourself as a unique and authentic performer. So don't be afraid to experiment, explore, and find what works for you. Remember, you are the best one of you there is.

A trick I perform the most...

I was recently asked if there is a type of trick that I perform more often than others. Not my favourite trick, or my favourite kind of magic or style, but a trick that gets shown more than any other
