Queen Mab the Fairy by Achird Queen Mab the Fairy by Achird
Wow, a lot of us had the same assignment, huh? XD
I hope my interpretation helps you come up with yours!
Good luck! =]

"...Drawn with a team of little atomies
Over men's noses as they lie asleep;
Her wagon spokes are made of long spinner's legs,
The cover, of wings of Grasshoppers;
Her traces, of the smallest spider web;
Her collars, of moonshine's watery beams;
Her whip, of cricket's bone; the lash, of film;
Her wagoner, a small gray coated gnat...
Her chariot is an empty hazelnut..."

Another artistic homework assignment. X3 Homework can be fun- rarely. ;-; *swamped*

Illustrate Queen Mab and her carriage from Mercutio's tirade in Scene 4, Act 1 of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Pretty self explanatory- I made up the atomies, 'cause it said they were 'tiny creatures' and the gnat driver has a fish hat. XD Oh, and it's an acorn... Meh. XP

Queen Mab actually came out really pretty for a quick sketch and even faster coloring job. XD

I got bored and doodled this out before coloring it even more sloppily. Oh well.

Queen Mab belongs to Shakespeare, I guess. XD
