Artist says Prince illustrations are now 'tribute' to icon

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island artist who illustrated Prince every day for a year says the project will now serve as a tribute to the music icon.

Rebekah Major told The Associated Press on Saturday she began "365 Days of Prince" in March of last year to improve as an artist.

Major says she drew the pop music superstar in "every ridiculous way" she could think of once a day. She was inspired by moments within the last year of the musician's life, current events and more. One of her favorite illustrations is a play on Norman Rockwell's famous self-portrait.

Major says Prince always resonated with her because his music "brings everyone together."

Prince was found dead Thursday at his suburban Minneapolis compound at age 57.
