Ben Whitesell on fan art, copyright and Moonrise Kingdom

Fan art has never been more popular. Whether illustrators are selling or displaying their work via their own sites, or taking advantage of online stores, the market for work based on classic movies, albums, games - and more - has never been greater.

At one end of the scale is Etsy, where illustrators are selling (not officially endorsed) work for a few pounds, and producing it on colour printers. At the other end of the scale are the likes of Mondo, which partners with studios to produce endorsed artwork in collaboration with leading artists. These posters have a limited print run, and use high-quality screen printing techniques to produce works that often sell out in a matter of seconds.
