I get asked quite a bit “Why Prince?”. People want to know if Prince was picked at random for this project, or if I’m just a super fan? I never sat down and created a list of celebrities crossing each out one by one, if thats what everyone would like to know. That would have been humorous to sit in on though! No, not Madonna too cone-y. Rick James won’t do… too super freaky. It just had to be Prince! There would have never been a project if there was not a Prince! I’ve always liked Prince and dug his music. When people tell me they aren’t into Prince I always just assume they haven’t heard much of his music, or that they didn’t realize when they were tapping their foot to “Little Red Corvette” that they were in fact enjoying music by Prince. I don’t think I’m a super fan, A fan for sure though! Ive always wanted to go see Prince in concert! Someday!
Prince is flamboyant and mysterious,and I love that! I think because he is mysterious people can’t help to wonder what he is like at home! I feel as though people imagine Prince living in a purple castle, dining on ambrosia all day, with butterflies fluttering about him. Maybe that mystery is why people enjoy 365 Days of Prince! I would also like to think maybe people simply just enjoy my illustrations
