The Brilliant Murmeli

A vintage magician themed poster commission

"WElcome to my most marvellous show, that will transform what you believe into something unbelievable!"

 
 

This is a commission completed for Minna Turunen (@amarathimi on Twitter) of her character Murmeli, who is part of a comic she is currently preparing "Book of Change". He's a sneaky fellow, always keen to cast transformation spells on the unruly. And oh, he's also a magical book, not a person. Suffice to say, he was very popular in the theatre and magician hay-day of 1910s to 30s.
