Mike Mills, Graphic Artist
Posted May 26, 2011 to photo album "Mike Mills, Graphic Artist"
Before becoming a feature filmmaker, writer/director Mike Mills honed his aesthetic sensibilities as a graphic artist, working on posters, album covers, skateboards, music videos, and TV commercials.
Undefeated Billboard Project
In 2007, Undefeated, curator Aaron Rose and Nike collaborated to created the Undefeated billboard project. The billboard is above the Undefeated Store on Los Angeles La Brea Avenue (just south of Beverly). For Zoetrope All-Story, Mills explained about the billboards, “two of which featured camera-trap photos of a mountain lion and a coyote. Not long ago, that section of La Brea was a natural habitat for both these animals. My designs are an attempt to reinsert them, at least in our consciousness, into this place.”
