My name is Dan Baines, a full time artist, prop designer and creator of the Mummified Fairy Hoax back in 2007.
Here's my biography...
Dan spent his youth collecting animal bones and immersing himself in fantasy books and anything even faintly connected with the paranormal. Raised on a staple diet of horror films, Goth music and the appreciation of everything freakish and abnormal Dan's tastes and unique style had been pretty much set in stone.
Lebanon Circle Magic Prop and Illusion Design has since become a globally revered name synonymous with unsurpassed quality and dastardly inventive illusions. This is partly thanks to a certain mummified fairy which catapulted him into the public eye in 2007 when the mummified Derbyshire fairy appeared in the news. After many radio and press interviews a steady stream of dead fairy commission requests came rolling in. Dan now works from his Kent studio surrounded by a menagerie of gothic terror, dismembered dolls and magic works in progress. His work sells globally with a high profile client list that would put ‘Hello’ magazine to shame. Dan continues to experiment with materials and techniques while incorporating local folklore, Victorian history and aspects of the paranormal and occult into his work.
Already a major mover and shaker in the world of art and magic Lebanon Circle Magic is a force to be reckoned with; albeit a dark one.
