Why doesn't my custom marker show on this static Google map?

Here is my code. This was hand coded because I couldn't find a suitable Static Map Code Generator. The map draws perfectly accept showing a default marker where the custom marker should be. The custom marker URL is valid. I tried URL coding all non-standard characters. Still got the default marker. I've looked and looked at this, and I don't see where it goes wrong.

I'm hoping more experienced and less tired eyes will spot the problem.
