No, the title is not sarcastic- yes, it is very amateurism (it was drawn by a little boy) but whilst browsing through several Tempest drawings- I connected with this. The picture depicts Prospero with Ariel floating above him. The thing is, I’ve always been a little confused about Ariel’s character and couldn’t really visual him (maybe her but I guess him) and this drawing actually helped me connect that Ariel was a spirit. The depiction of Prospero over a desk also connects to him as a scholarly persona who neglected his duties as duke to pursue his studies in magic.

 

Cheers,
