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
Meltdown Gallery inside Meltdown Comics

Ah yeah, should have known. You make acrylics look like oil [acrylics are so much better than oil].

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.

It's been said already, but I'll say it again. The lighting you achieved here is spectacular and the shadows on the pages are perfect.

yeah... i guess you're right. In my head it was a romantic song and therefore I got some wires crossed. Editing the description.

How is it possible to slow-dance to this song? Ah well, beautiful work as always. The colours used to highlight her hair in particular is stunning.

Sorry, all I can think of when I hear that song now is the "literal version", which goes like so:

Reading a book,
Lady brings a new cup of coffee
Peek in the window
(She would rather keep on reading)
Look at the frame
There's a handsome guy inside this comic

Close up eyes (close up eyes!)
Hand comes out (hand comes out!)
Sketchy arm
Grab the haaaaaaaand~


Anyway, this is awesome.
