This is my first depiction of space, and my second one is no less fantastical as I referenced Hubble images of the Horsehead Nebula while also depicting Pegasus. With I and Cosmonaut Neil Armstrong I am looking more at Marc Chagall’s gravity-defying paintings than any more scientific view of the universe.

Below is the subject’s answer to this question: what does it mean to be an American?

Freedom.
