Queen Mab the Fairy by Achird Queen Mab the Fairy by Achird
EDIT:
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

Haha, really? Wow, this project must be used throughout the nation- I was assigned this in Pennsylvania. XD

Umm~ It's been a few years, but we read it from this big hardcover book with lots of short stories crammed into it as well. I'm not sure what it was called, but I'm pretty sure its publisher was penguin. 83
