Miki Muster je živel svoje sanje, želel je, da jih živite še vi!

Miki Muster lived his dream, he wanted you to live them too!

Written by Mojca Štruc, translated by JL Flanner

»Kot otrok sem sanjal, da bom zabaval druge. Mislim, da mi je uspelo, in tudi vam želim, da se vam vaše sanje izpolnijo …«

"As a child, I dreamed that I would entertain others. I think I did it, and I also want you to achieve your dream ... "

Majhni otroci radi sanjajo, kaj bodo, ko odrastejo. Nekateri na to kasneje pozabijo, drugi pa sanje uresničijo.

Small children like to dream about what they will be when they grow up. Some people later forget it, while others [still] dream of realizing it.

Eden takšnih je bil Miki Muster, ki je umrl pri skoraj 93 letih.

One of the latter was Miki Muster, who died aged nearly 93 years old.

Že kot otrok je bil navdušen nad risankami.

As a child he was very interested in cartoons.

Ko si je pri 13 letih ogledal film Sneguljčica in sedem palčkov, pa je začel sanjati, da bi jih tudi ustvarjal. Doma je zato risal in risal.

When he was 13 years old and saw the film Snow White and Seven Dwarfs he started dreaming of making cartoons, and was drawing and drawing at home.

Miki Muster je vedel, kaj želi početi v življenju. Na Akademiji za likovno umetnost je študiral kiparstvo, vendar se je kasneje spet bolj posvetil risanju.

Miki Muster knew what he wanted to do in life. At the Academy of Fine Arts he studied sculpture, but later he turned to drawing more.

Javnost ga je bolje spoznala, ko je začel leta 1952 v prvem slovenskem povojnem tedniku objavljati stripe.

The public got to know him better when he began publishing comics in 1952, in the first Slovenian post-war period.

Glavni junaki so bile živali s človeškimi lastnostmi. Zvitorepec, Trdonja in Lakotnik so še danes slavni liki.

The main characters were animals with human qualities, and Zvitorepec, Trdonja and Lakotnik are still famous figures today.

Ustvarjal je tudi reklamne spote za televizijo. Znan je njegov Indijanček na Viki kremi, znani so njegovi zajčki iz Cikcaka. Ves ta čas je upal, da bo dobil priložnost tudi za ustvarjanje animiranih filmov.

He also created advertisements clips for television. His [character of an] Indian for Viki Krema is well-known, as are his rabbits for Cikcak. But all this time he hoped to get a chance to create animated films.

Sanje je začel živeti, ko je režiral in animiral prvi slovenski risani film Puščica. Sledila sta še filma Kurir Nejček in Zimska zgodba.

He started to live his dream when he directed and animated the first Slovene cartoon Puščica. This was followed by the films Kurir Nejček and Winter Story.

Nato je v Nemčiji sodeloval pri seriji 400 risanih filmov. Poznali so jo po vsem svetu.

He then worked on a series of 400 cartoons in Germany. These are known all over the world.

Po osamosvojitvi Slovenije se je vrnil domov in za svoje delo prejel številna priznanja, leta 2015 tudi veliko Prešernovo nagrado.

After Slovenia's independence, he returned home and received numerous awards for his work, and in 2015 he also received the biggest, the Preseren Prize.

Največja nagrada pa je bila sreča, da je živel svoje sanje. »Imam eno željo: če imate vi neizpolnjene otroške sanje, vam želim, da bi se vam izpolnile, tako kot so se moje,« je nekoč dejal.

But Muster’s greatest reward was the happiness that he lived his dream. "I have one wish: if you have unfulfilled children's dreams, I want you to achieve them, just like I did mine," he once said.

Slovenia Traffic Info

  • The first significant increase in foreign vehicles driving on Slovenian roads before the main summer tourist season is during the Easter holidays.

    We are therefore expecting increased traffic at the end of this week from Austria and Italy in the direction of the border crossings with Croatia and from Italy to Hungary.

    Holidays in certain parts of Europe start on Thursday, 29 March; therefore, we may expect increased traffic from Austria in the direction of Croatia. On Thursday, we also expect heavy freight traffic and long waiting lines at the border crossings with Croatia.
     

    Roads will be heavily burdened on Friday, 30 March. Heavy congestions can be expected on the Lower Carniola motorway at Dobruška vas due to construction works.
     

    Due to the end of the holidays in most European countries, traffic will be significantly increased in the opposite direction on Monday, 2 April, and Tuesday, 3 April. 


    The electronic tolling system is being implemented on 1 April and short road closures are to be expected during the night.

    When and where there will be the most traffic based on data from previous years: info.


    You can view the travel times on certain sections live on the website of the Traffic Information Centre at www.promet.si.

    Limitations for freight traffic

    Please note that limitations for freight traffic in Slovenia also apply on Easter Friday and later on Sunday and Monday. There will be no limitations in Slovenia on Saturday.

    A full road closure is expected in the Dobruška vas - Drnovo section until 21 May, which will be carried out in five stages. Traffic shall run on the other half of the motorway in both directions. Due to the full closure of the section, the Smednik junction will host temporary passage. Due to the closure of junction sections A and B at the Smednik junction (the expected start of the construction works is at the beginning of April), a detour will run on state-owned roads. The Zaloke jug rest area will be closed for the duration of the closure.

    From Monday, 16 April to Thursday, 19 April from 8am to 4pm there will be maintenance works in the Karavanke tunnel.

    As part of adjusting the toll booths for the DarsGo system, there will be a full half hour closure of the Divača - Kozina section on Monday, 2 April between 12am and 1am due to the removal of the signalisation at the CP Videž gantry. There will be a short closure of the Gabrk - Sežana vzhod section on Tuesday, 3 April between 4am and 6am due to the removal of the signalisation at the CP Dane gantry. Traffic will also occasionally be hindered outside the listed dates.

    Within the next phase of a more extensive renovation of the Vipava expressway, the worn roads in certain sections of the Vipava-Ajdovščina and Ajdovščina-Selo expressway in the total length of 7.7km will be renewed in each direction. The contractor will begin the renovation works as soon as the weather allows for it or after the end of the winter service on the motorways and expressways at the latest, most probably in the last third of March.

    On Saturday, 7 April, lines will be painted for the toll booths on the Styria motorway, while road patching works at CP Tepanje will commence on Sunday, 8 April.

    Prevention

    We are already seeing bikers on our roads and numerous national prevention initiatives to increase the safety of bikers are already taking place. The purpose of the initiatives is to make bikers aware of the importance of preparing appropriately at the start of the biker season, of wearing protective gear, of unexpected situations on the roads and of other participants in road traffic. More can be found at the link bikers.

    Speed as a risk factor remains one of the main reasons for traffic accidents and is an important contributor to the severity of consequences and the number of people severely or mortally injured in these accidents. Therefore we urge you to be attentive and to adjust your speed to the conditions on the road!

    Traffic information

    We suggest that you check the status of the roads using:
    - the website www.promet.si,
    - the PIC operator by dialling 1970 (the number is not free of charge) or the responder 080 22 44 (free of charge),
