A Pocket Full of Murder

A fresh palette

Lots of people have been admiring the icon that I've used on this post, so I figure I'll answer everyone's question as to where it came from:

James Marsh Prints.

I first encountered Marsh's work through the album covers he did back in the 80's and early 90's for my favorite (though now sadly defunct) band, Talk Talk. His work is reminiscent of Magritte and Dali, but with a more overtly playful tone and an obvious passion for nature. I used to have a large poster of this print, the album cover for Spirit of Eden, but it got sadly mangled when I moved out of my parents' home and I had to get rid of it (sniff). Perhaps some day...
