Return To Childhood by MarkWilkinson Return To Childhood by MarkWilkinson
Commissioned by Fish for his year-long tour and album celebrating the 20th anniversary of his previous band Marillion's greatest success: 'Misplaced Childhood'.

It portrays the boy from that album grown up...contemplating his fate...alone in his room with his artifacts of childhood and progress through life surrounding him. He has a catharsis - in a blinking of an eye...with a visitation of the spirit of the boy...when all was possible before fateful decisions were made.

I love this! I'm a massive fan of Fish, and think you've out done yourself on this one, it's awrsome. You've really summed up the mysticness in the albumn. If you have time I would really apreciate it if you could have a look at my pic, Childhoods End? [link] and leave some creative critisism

This is so beautiful! I always love bright colours :)
I see there are many colours in, for example, the white blanket on the chair, i'm going to use that as an inspiration for my piantings, thanks!
