Mike Mills: Drawings from the Film BeginnersMike Mills: Drawings from the Film Beginners

Published by Damiani.
Introduction by Aaron Rose.

Mike Mills' films and design work have dominated the visual landscape of the past two decades, through record covers and music videos for bands like Air, Blonde Redhead and Sonic Youth, movies such as The Architecture of Reassurance (2000) and Paperboys (2001) and his first feature-length film, Thumbsucker (2004), starring Keanu Reeves and Tilda Swinton. 2011 sees the release of Mills' new feature film, Beginners, starring Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer. McGregor plays a character who, as Mills describes, “shares some things with me: we both do graphic design, we both often figure out what we're thinking by drawing, we both have dogs and we both did record covers for a very real band named The Sads. This book contains all the drawings which I (Mike) drew, and that Oliver (played by Ewan) works with in the film. Oliver has the unfortunate idea of creating an illustrated 'History of Sadness' as a record cover for the The Sads, including such episodes as: Neanderthal man realizes he's outclassed by homo sapiens man, the pilgrims, industrialization, birth of the novel, pets in general and many more.” This volume also features a new series of drawings: an illustrated History of Love which includes such chapters as: the first butt to attract, great lovers in film, flappers, free love's not so easy, internal vs external problems and many more.

Mike Mills: Graphics FilmsMike Mills: Graphics Films

Published by Damiani.
Edited by Aaron Rose.

Graphics Films is the first retrospective monograph on one of the hardest-working men in contemporary creative culture. For more than 15 years, Mike Mills' works in the fields of design and film have determined the visual landscape of our times. Graphics Films is a painstakingly produced document of Mills' career to date, including many never-before-seen examples of his works in graphic design, installation, publications and film projects. Past projects by Mills include music videos for Air ("Sexy Boy"), Blonde Redhead ("Top Ranking"), Yoko Ono ("Walking on Thin Ice") and Bran Van 3000 ("Afrodiziak") and album cover designs for the Beastie Boys (the Root Down EP), Sonic Youth (Washing Machine), Air (Moon Safari and Kelly Watch the Stars) and others. He has designed graphics and textiles for Marc Jacobs and created the identity for X-Girl Clothing, and has exhibited his unique graphic installations worldwide, with solo shows at Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York and Colette in Paris, among others. In 1996 Mills cofounded The Directors Bureau, a multidisciplinary production company, with Roman Coppola. Since then, he has directed an impressive slew of music videos and films including The Architecture of Reassurance (2000) and Paperboys (2001), both of which were official selections at the Sundance Film Festival. In 2004 he completed his first feature film, Thumbsucker (starring Keanu Reeves and Tilda Swinton), and he is currently at work on his second.

Mike Mills: HumansMike Mills: Humans

Published by Nieves.
Artwork by Mike Mills.

Humans takes the reader through a season of renowned graphic artist and filmmaker Mike Mills' recollections in drawings, graphics and snapshots, and concludes with a disarmingly open essay that begins "My father passed away in the fall. He had been ill for about nine months but he didn't act like a sick person. He worked more than ever, dressed stylish, had parties, wrote an essay on religion where Jesus did not die violently on the cross but peacefully of old age in the desert. He also planned his own elaborate funeral and sketched out a few memorials to himself. After he was gone I stopped working. For a long while everything was very quiet. I had been meditating on and off for several years, but I started to sit every day. Slowly, I started working again, but I found that I wasn't trying to invent images so much as document little moments that happened to me."

Mike Mills "Dates" PosterMike Mills "Dates" Poster

Published by Commune Design.

From Commune Design, the Mike Mills | Commune Poster Series:

"Why are we making posters with Mike Mills? Because we both wanted to make something accessible that lives in the home…and we were jonesing to work with Mike. What are they about? Social unrest and change…or color and texture…whatever floats your boat. What was the process of making them like? A picnic in the park. Who printed them? We worked with Paper Chase Press on the offset and the ever elusive American Foothill for the newsprint."

"Every day our culture performs the magic trick of making ideas, and people, light bulbs and stories, clothes, presidents, city names, buildings, food, poems, cars, political parties, sexual orientations, birthdays, teddy bears and yes even posters."

22.75 x 24". Web printing on newsprint by American Foothill. Comes folded like any old newspaper.

Not available for trade distribution.

Mike Mills "Grey Flapper" PosterMike Mills "Grey Flapper" Poster

Published by Commune Design.

From the Mike Mills | Commune Poster Series.

These posters were made with the wildness, inhibition-shedding sophistication, and willful self-destruction of women like Zelda Fitzgerald, Louise Brooks and Anita Loos in mind. They were made for the women who sat in Werner Werkstatt interiors in the 20s, to be in the bedrooms of the women who wore Klimt dresses. They were made for the women who drank, smoked and lost their way with a self-conscious fervor that we are still exploring/suffering from today.

Published by Commune Design.

From the Mike Mills | Commune Poster Series.

Text Reads:
1974 Robert Opel streaks at the Academy Awards ceremony. “I am Robert Opel. I am an artist, a cocksucker and an anarchist. My life is my art. Sometimes I use a camera. Sometimes I have trouble disseminating images. I record because people seem to be frightened of sexual imagery. Men like myself have been feared and persecuted because of our sexual preference. But I persist. Eventually, I believe I will receive wider attention” April, 1979
