Following the news that pop icon Prince has passed away, the tributes have started flooding in. Google US paid their respects via a Purple Rain-themed logo; and next week's New Yorker will honour the singer with a special edition cover created by illustrator Bob Staake. Artists around the world are also commemorating Prince's life and legacy by uploading some pretty incredible artwork on Tumblr and Instagram. Here are some of our favourites so far.
