Take On Me by jasinski Take On Me by jasinski
My piece for the "I Want My Music Video" art show- this one was inspired by the seminal music video with the same title by the band Aha. You know the song. The one played at every junior-high school dance.

Show opens Oct 7th

This is a beautiful rendition of the elements of this video...every 80s music special has this amongst their selection. Love how that video was composed :D

I really like the pages flying in the air and the boldness of the colours. I also really like the reflection of light from the hand...so so good.

Awesome. Favourited :+fav:

Wow! You are an amazing artist! Love this piece a lot! I remember this video. I loved the art work they did for it and the song. Back in the day, this was ground breaking artistically in the video realm. An 80's video, right? Whatever, I look forward to seeing more of your work.
