The title for this piece refers to The Little Prince and the way it’s been badly translated into English, something that I talk about in some detail in this video. This isn’t the first time one of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s characters has found their way into my art. In 2014, the Prince himself helped me make an important point about copyright.
