Qua-Fiki's Matrix-Mix
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

Borrowing on ideas from Al Schneider, inventor of Matrix, Ton Onosaka, inventor of Bicycles built for Five, and Shawn Farquhar who first merged the two ideas together, Qua-Fiki adds his own penchant for simplification and offers a variety of new themes and variations on themes to mix Matrix with his Bicycles built for Four, Vanishing Elephants, and much more. It's all part of his Matrix-Mix.

Qua-Fiki's card work can be done with almost any version of Matrix, with or without gimmicks, although Qua-Fiki prefers to perform it just the way he learned it from watching Al Schneider on DVD. You can print out the designs on blank face playing cards, or on the backs of your own business cards. The effects can also be performed standing at a table, so they can be used with restaurant work, etc.

Everyone will want to get your business card when it ends up with the back of the card looking like this! The elephants (and little Qua-Fiki riders) vanish from the backs of the other cards and gather together just like the quarters or half dollars you use to simultaneously perform Matrix beneath the cards. Templates for printing are included. Use your own computer printer and software for printing business cards, or Qua-Fiki's method for printing on blank face playing cards.
