Welly, welly, well, well, well, well, welly, well, well, well, it's a new season so a new dA ID is in order. I'm not sure if I'll us this one or not, but I thought I'd post it anyway (just in case). I have two other ID designs I'm working on. So which ever fits the summer season best I will use!

This book..... not the movie, but the book (though the movie will do the same, not as bad though) will F with your mind if you read it more than a few hours. The writing is.... I think it's amazing.

Here's the Sparknotes summary for it:
"A Clockwork Orange takes place in a futuristic city governed by a repressive, totalitarian super-State. In this society, ordinary citizens have fallen into a passive stupor of complacency, blind to the insidious growth of a rampant, violent youth culture."

It's great, I highly suggest it. But keep in mind, this isn't a kids story, it gets pretty bad in areas. REALLY bad in some parts of the book, I mean it's pretty much young men running around doing what ever they like, so you can imagine.

Anyhoo, it's an amazing book, I like the movie too, so I drew my new hair colored self in what the boys wear in the movie. Yup, my hair is now a dark blackish red color. lol, and since my hair still isn't used to so much hair dye (you know from blonde to dark red) it sticks straight out like a crazy person <XD sigh...

never read the book, but I love the movie and I'm certainly loving the picture, somehow I didn't expect this from you, well, what's that about judging books by the cover you say?

Clockwork Orange... I hail Kubrick for being awesome, and I hail you for being as awesome as he is!
I really should get to read that book in English, though...

Looove this movie. Haven't read the book, but I really want to. Cute (and disturbing!) idea for an ID.

Thanks!
Ooh! If you loved the movie, you'll definitely love the book :) It's like.... take all the messed up and twisted stuff in the movie and times it by 10, that's the book. Lol, but it's confusing at the same time cause it's completely written in the slang Alex uses.

haha, the soundtrack's pretty amazing XD
After watching the movie though, I still can't listen to Beethoven's 5th and Singing in the Rain the same way ever again.

I was way more confused by the old man in the room with all the roman architecture. By the time the baby showed up I was like "whatever."

HNNNNGH, IF IT ISN'T SANDRA PULLING AN ALEX ON US!? :iconimhorrifiedplz:
Really, man, this ID is to DIE FOR; based on one o' the most deranged novels I've ever read, one of the most wonderfully screwy movies I've ever seen (but it was directed by Kubrick, so I should have seen that one coming), and based on one of the most insane youngsters that ever existed in the world of fiction. :heart: You look fantastic, lemme say right now~<33
The make-up, the pose, the bowler hat, the cane, your epic beauty mark of epic, your awesometastically stylized hair in here, IT IS DAZZLING. <3

Thank you! Glad you like!
Oh gosh, I had to reread almost every sentence in the book when I first read it <XD haha! But I guess it's part of the experience. The movies pretty awesome too, it doesn't have the same scary "crazy person" vibe like the book had, but still a good watch :D

haha, that's actually what happened with me and my book. I bought it a long while ago and left it on the shelf. And when I went to go organize, I found it again and said, "Okay... you will finally be read." ^^; haha, then when I finally read it I was like, "Why did I leave you for so long?" <XD
