Writers, musicians, filmmakers, and other artists create amazing worlds that are straight out of their imaginations.

As a result, iconic works of art are just filled with subtle (and not-so-subtle) references to their creators' own lives.

This contest was suggested by Burritomouth, and was probably inspired by some fascinating aspect of his own life.
