The biggest inspiration and point of reference for this project has been Fan Art. I looked at this from the perspective of video games, tv shows, films, books and even plays. The Fan Art that I focused on showed how the story has influenced the artist and how they have interpreted it as well as emphasized various elements of the stories visually in unique ways.   

I looked at Fan Art for Shakespeare’s tale of Macbeth. The work used recurring elements from the story: the three witches, the bloody dagger, and the kings crown. One piece had the three witches standing in formation that looked like a crown, another with a crown dripping blood, a dagger through a crown, and numerous other creative combinations of these elements and others.
