An image from Michael's childhood. "When I was a child, my friend and I gathered in front of a small black and white television in his bedroom and watched the adventures of, Captain Kirk, Spock, Doctor McCoy and the rest of the crew of the Star Ship Enterprise. I still watch the reruns today, but I believe the inspiration behind my caricature of the Enterprise, had it's roots from watching that small black and white television".
