Holden Caulfield by MadLibbs Holden Caulfield by MadLibbs
Sometimes I feel like I relate with this guy more than anyone. That's probably not a good thing. Oh well.
love love love this book- catcher in the rye

This is my phone background.
I feel like I can relate a lot to Holden too, which is probably a bad thing considering all of the serial killers related to Catcher in the Rye.

Is it weird that sometimes I think that I could be Holden Caulfield's long lost clone?

So anyway, I just started reading this book.  I like it a lot, I really do.  This character, Holden Caulfield, is a pretty negative guy.  He puts everyone down and thinks he's really great and all.  Boy, he can really get on your nerves.  He really can be pretty annoying.  And yet, I sort of like him.  Really I do.  Because he's not a phony. Nothing kills me more than a phony.  And the more I read this book, the more I like this Holden Caulfield guy.  I feel like him, in fact.  Really I do.

I understand what you mean when you say it's not a good thing to relate to because I was the same but at least you're able to recognize it because some people never do (they're still in denial). Anyway, learned so much from that book ^_^

block shading works the best with this!
makes everything so bold and stand out.
it has so much impact.

love the way you wrote the words within the smoke! so clever!
don't miss the message there, ahahaha. even the way you did that is so clever. with some of them faded in colour.
ah did that take you long. the effort you put into these things, shucks!

you sure know your stuff! :]

love your style. really do!

I don't know, but I could totally relate to him as well. And that was when I was 14 :\
But this is a great rendition. He's a lot younger than I had imagined when I was reading the book, but I like that. It kinda ... makes a point. If that makes any sense at all ...
