For this piece, I was intrigued by the famous character Don Quixote from Man of La Mancha. He is defined as a "mad" man because he chose to live his life through a dream and deny his true existence in reality. Eventually, he begins to see the world for what it truly is - nonetheless, he insists to live in a romanticized world where his desires can exist.
