Part of the Story: 6 Stories that Inspired Fan Art

Fan art is a way for fans to take part in their favourite stories and shows, painting possible endings, new characters, and many other creative extensions. They're examples of the ripple effect of these stories, and and they exist as authors in their own right. Here are 6 stories that have inspired some great fan art:

The Fault in Our Stars Fan Art

John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars", is now a feature film which will pull in a new set of fans. Love stories with strings of philosophy prompt artwork from fans who want to re-create these worlds and mend their hearts.

Mononoke Fan Art

Hayao Miyazaki's "Princess Mononoke" mixes fantasy elements with the theme of saving a forest from the human pillaging of resources. The fantasy makes good for the artwork, and the theme rings true today as it brings up questions of environmental ideologies and resource extraction.

Clifford the Big Red Dog Fan Art

Clifford the Big Red Dog is a children's classic, illustrated in a cartoon-y fashion. The story is simple, but Clifford remains everyone's big best friend. Like our pet dogs of all sizes, the space they take up in our hearts is as big as Clifford turned out to be.

Community Fan art

Undergoing the possibility of a revival, the fans of the hilarious show,Community,have held on to hope. The fan art is a reflection of the love for this group of characters, and exists in a world all its own.

Homestuck Fan Art

Andrew Hussie's webcomic, Homestuck, was pretty much made for fan art and multiple imaginations. It is complex and entertaining and possibly sits as the quiet voice of a generation. It's threaded with the kind of fantasy that seems to match the inner worlds of readers all over.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fan Art

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has created fans across generations with multiple franchises over a few decades. We'll likely see them many times in the future, on screen, and in fan art.
