    pencil illustration for uni brief - a book cover for the classic crime novel 'the big sleep'. loved a quote from the book regarding a greenhouse full of orchids; think it sums up the general tone/themes of the story and seemed appropriate to adopt in some way for the cover!

    “Do you like orchids?”
    “Not particularly,” I said.
    The General half closed his eyes, “They are nasty things. Their flesh is too much like the flesh of men. And their perfume has the rotten sweetness of a prostitute.”
