Get Over Yourselves!
Models are nothing but living clothes racks.
And magicians are little more than contractors. They are asked to do their magic stuff at a certain time and a certain place. They are expected to dress a certain way and how to behave towards the client's audience. And within those limits magicians actually give in into illusion that they are artists.
Deciding to use red cards and to do that one trick that particular way is not art. It is as much a decision as a carpenter who uses a pair of pliers instead of the hammer to get a nail in the wooden board.
When it comes to character magicians seem to be full of the artist delusion.
Outside of a "pay frame" this is a different story. But within we are no more than contractors.
