Questlove From the Roots wrote that Prince has these fantastic Roller Skates. From what I understand Prince invited him to go to a Valentines day rollerskating party. I read a blog that he wrote, and he described these skates as “clear skates that lit up, and the wheels sent a multicolored spark trail into your path. Here is the link if you would like to read it : The Time I went Roller Skating With Prince. So Questlove’s story was the inspiration for todays Prince!!! Whether this story is true or not…I have no idea! For the record though, I would love to see these skates if they really exist!
My boyfriend built a cool work area on top of our bathroom with lots of free pallets. We live in a loft in Pawtucket, RI in a building that was once a mill. Ive been using his little area lately to photograph my Prince drawings. Its cozy up here and i’m surrounded by his books so it makes me happy. I have been missing him a lot lately because he is away for work.
With this project wrapping up I have been thinking quite abit about the second phase. I have set up an account on Go Fund Me because I need to raise money for this project to reach the next level. I need to scan 365 images so I have electronic files for publishing. I also need to frame 365 images to have a gallery show. Framing is super expensive, there is no way I can afford that without some sort of help. If you would like to help out you can click on this link: http://www.gofundme.com/365daysofprince and donate whatever you can! Anything will be very appreciated !
Only 28 left to go!!! I have emailed so many magazines,publishers,blogs, and even newspapers to hopefully have the project published. All I have received in my inbox so far is one measly rejection letter. The rejection letter was from a book publisher, whom I had doubts about the fit anyway. Hopefully I can have this project printed by someone after all the hard work I have put into it. I’m sort of out of ideas of who else to contact. I have been making a serious effort as of the last couple weeks to push this project to the next level. Well enough with the rambling, here is this weeks illustrations!
So I decided to set up a go fund me for the Prince project! Right now all the Princes live in a cozy little box. My hopes are to frame each one. I also need to get them ready incase one of the publishers I have wrote to would like to publish 365 Days of Prince into an awesome book! So if you like my project please donate!!! Thank you !!!
Every now and then I like to post two illustrations from my project showing what a great exercise this has been for me. On Day ten I was super excited about Walking Dead being on television later that evening so I created “Zombie Prince”. I hated “Zombie Prince” from the moment I created him. I deemed him the worst Prince I ever created. I still hate him. I still think he is the worst Prince of the project. So I decided to do a redo! Here is ” Zombie Prince .2″ I actually kind of like “Zombie Prince .2”! I would kill Zombie Prince off if I could, but he is already dead. #323 is to the left & #10 is on the right.
Everyone is pretty excited about the Patriots winning the SuperBowl in Rhode island!!! I didn’t even watch the game. I spent the afternoon doing my taxes, being a carpenters assistant, and looking for a publisher for 365 days of Prince!!! Everyone has been posting about Katy Perry’s dancing shark on Facebook, so I had to check it out! I found it to be pretty amusing! That shark total forgot his dance routine or just couldn’t move in that costume. I wish he just busted out doing the robot or started twerking! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2936210/Are-worst-backing-dancers-Katy-Perry-s-supporting-shark-lost-track-choreography-goes-viral.html#v-4027129109001
