The Little Prince

52 Comments
49K Views
UPDATE, APRIL 21 2017: Yearly update...as it turns out, Prince himself saw this around 2013/4, and highly approved of it. I found this out because he had personally found it online and linked it to a few of his assistants and employees, one of whom reached out to me over Facebook to thank me for this illustration. I am so, so happy for this, and to have been able to meet all sorts of people through this work. I feel like I've been personally blessed by one of my dearest heroes.

UPDATE, APRIL 21 2016: I had no idea this would blow up in popularity so fast! For any licensing requests and full size versions, please contact me here: robotkat@live.com or www.facebook.com/jen.p.crawfor… . Anyone who wants the design on a shirt, print, or the like can visit my Society6: society6.com/product/tlp_print

Just a bit of a light parody today. Tumblr seems to really like it.

Also, I only went with the Purple Rain look because it's so recognizable. He's had so many outfits.

Hi! No more redbubble? I tried the link above, but it doesn't work. I'd love a shirt with this design on it.
Can you contact me directly? Trying to commission a bigger print from you of this if you're willing!
I would love to have this on a mug but the photo on Redbubble has the head cut off :( is there a way to fix this?

PS: I love this book and Prince, I adore this piece. Thank you for your work, truly beautiful.

Oh no! Thank you for telling me, I've just gone in and fixed it! Redbubble's still a little new to me. It should look normal now!

And yet, only 66 favs here? ;/

inspired.  ;)
Where can we buy an actually print? It is not listed on Redbubble. Thank you.

Sorry about that! I just revised the settings of my Redbubble listing, and I found a bunch of stuff wasn't checked by default. It should give plenty of print options now!

Thank you very much for this ... I, like many FB people, found it via PostSecret (www.facebook.com/postsecret/ )

It is lovely.

Hey Jenna,

 

My name is Makez and I produce a technology and entertainment show for ITN productions in London.

 

I’m doing a feature on the social media response to Prince’s passing and would love to use your artwork.It would be fully credited. 

Let me know.

 

Thanks,

Thanks,

I'm sure you know people are sharing this all over the place today :/ I am posting the link to here whenever I see it (on faceboot) I posted it there with the link here of course. I encourage you to sign your work, your copyright and URL should be on everything you post so people can easily find you if they want to see more of your work or buy some. I love this piece btw.

Excellent job, mate! Such a perfect tribute. RIP
Do you have this image on tshirts? Like cafe press or red bubble?

Well, right now, it's the shirt of the day on Teelegend: www.teelegend.co.uk/ . I also just now added it to my Redbubble account to make sure it's known this was my work: www.redbubble.com/people/robot…
