Ooh! I like this too! I don't think I've seen anything like this by you 
before, Marc. I agree with what Alan says, but to me it's also got a 
slightly comic-book pop-art thing going on, because of the crisp 
boundary lines, the flat tones and the texture-lines inside some of the 
shapes. A hint of Lichtenstein? It's very absorbing to look at.
