Commission for Alborke of his character "Pink" as a young tyke, playing around with his father's RAF uniform. He's got a rather intriguing story behind this whole idea, based on the Pink Floyd song "The Thin Ice"; here's an excerpt from his description:
"The song's essentially about the few fragile years of innocence the protagonist experiences (there are plenty of deeper interpretations and note-by-note analysis of it that have been written elsewhere, but that's the basic gist of it), and so I wanted a style that would reflect that sense of innocence. So we have our protagonist, Pink, as a young boy, playing about with his father's RAF uniform, blissfully unaware of the implications it holds. It won't be long though before the metaphoric ice cracks under his feet and his construction of the wall begins..."
