“Well, when I was nine years old, Star Trek came on, I looked at it and I went screaming through the house, ‘Come here, mum, everybody, come quick, come quick, there’s a black lady on television and she ain’t no maid!’ I knew right then and there I could be anything I wanted to be.ā€
ā€” Whoopi Goldberg

This is what I woke up to today. It’s everything to me right now. So elegant, timely, necessary and direct. I just love it! Which is saying something, since I’ve never actually been a Star Trek fan.

I have to admit that I know nothing about the artist other than the following which was posted along with the illustration.

M. Steffens. Brazilian, Designer & Illustrator.
