Playground for Life by MarkWilkinson Playground for Life by MarkWilkinson
Commissioned by Irish band Glyder for their second album. This is a complex image which was to portray a fairground...full of rogues and villains...all wearing masks...and at the centre: a Merry-Go-Round with the album title as it’s name.

The meanings behind the imagery are described in the lyrics...I watched both series of the HBO series Carnivále for inspiration...there’s good and evil in this picture
too...albeit dressed up in a more modern setting. Either way...you wouldn’t want to stray into this nightmare park for too long!
