Prince was as much a master of reinvention as he was a master of his craft. He changed his name at least seven times and spanned several genres with his music. He played various instruments and he was a producer, an actor, and a director as well as a legendary singer and song writer. Oh, and he also changed his hairstyle 36 times between 1978 and 2013.

As you can see from the below illustrations by artist and set designer Gary Card, Prince was never out of style. Prince WAS style, and unlike most popular musicians today, he didn’t just follow the trends. He SET the trends, and while he may no longer be with us, he’ll still be inspiring generations of musicians and artists for many decades to come.

RIP Prince.
