The Purple One

an illustration by alleanna harris of the legendary singer Prince in concert

Hey everyone! I’m back! I spent May revising illustrations for a book (that I can’t wait to share). Just small revisions left. Now I have some free time… to do even more art.

Did you know that this month is Black Music Month? It was started in 1979 by Kenny Gamble and Dyana Williams. The month focuses on Black music artists that are from the US. President Carter signed the first proclamation on June 7, 1979 and President Obama renamed it African American Music Appreciation Month in 2009.

I figured I should start with Prince because it would’ve been his 60th birthday on June 7th. After this, I might rewind and go back to the early 20th century. We’ll play it by ear.
