Queen Mab has been a character before and after Shakespeare's play. Her miniscule stature coupled with her ingenuity, strength and dramatic appearance make her an ideal character to recreate visually.I offer two suggestions to assist your project: the frst being  the second line of Mercutio's spellbinding speech-

She is the fairies’ midwife,

A second (and more developed) idea would be to consider 'The Veil of Queen Mab'.

This refers to the title of a  short story by the Nicaraguan modernist Rubén Darío. The story -

  'explores the artist's relationship with the world, as well as the beauty of artistic creation. The story climaxes with Queen Mab enveloping the four artists in her veil, "el velo de los sueños, de los dulces sueños, que hacen ver la vida del color de rosa" ("the veil of dreams, of sweet dreams, that make the world appear rose-colored"). In this way, Queen Mab alleviates the artists' sadness, giving them hope and allowing them to continue their creative endeavors.'

I think when considering the artistic nature of your assignment that this allusion would be an appropriate one.
