I was watching the classic Clockwork Orange by Stanley Kubrick the other day for the first time in a long time and it really dawned on me how much I do love this movie. Not exactly sure why though.

I used nail art pens for the black lines, and Alex the Narrator's green and blue shirt and eye. I frankened Sally Hansen Satin Slip Frost and Elegance French White together to get his flesh tone.
I kinda love it.
