New cover page of Mladina weekly 13/2008
It’s been a while since I was working on coverpage of Mladina weekly. This time I was called by creative director Robert Botteri that we would like to have a cover page that will illustrate that Janša‘s rating is raising whereas Pahor‘s is dropping + he would like to have something with balloons and a pump. I knew that someguy in Slovenia is very likely the best balloon artist in the world and I called an association of magicians to get his contact.
Niko Fric is traveling throughout the world making workshops, shows, fashion shows, art shows, etc. When I called him he just came back from Moscow where he held a masterclass. Next workshop is in Dubai. He is teaching magicians in Las Wegas, where he won several awards.
Before Niko made the figures I choose light warm colours, because I knew I’ll use dark blue background.
Author of baloons is NIKO FRIC.
