According to an article in the OC Register, "Working for Disney has been great, Kungl says, but he’s had to walk a fine line with the notoriously buttoned-up company. 'Artists like myself were getting so off the style guide in stylizing the Disney characters that they didn’t like it and it became a big issue,' he says. Specifically, eyebrows were raised when Kungl submitted 'Tinkertini' – Tinker Bell luxuriating in a martini glass. 'They said, ‘You can’t put the world’s most famous fairy in a martini glass with alcohol. It’s just not gonna fly. If you try to do this again, we’re going to have a problem,’' he recalls. "

Drawing inspiration from European graphic painter A. M. Cassandre and American industrial designers Raymond Loewy and Henry Dreyfuss, Mike Kungl was influenced by these designers’ dramatic take on the Art Deco and Streamline styles. Kungl’s own spin on the deco/streamline movement evolved quickly and soon into his new career, Kungl’s influence went beyond his Southern California beginnings as he gained notoriety on both coasts of the United States.
