Humans Manifesto.
No plan survives first contact with the enemy.
Sometimes being dumb is the only smart alternative.
Shy people are secretly egoists. Nothing is real.
Everything you see is a dream you project onto the
world. Children live out their parents unconscious.
The only animals that suffer from anxiety are the
ones that associate with humans. I don’t trust
people who are very articulate. The only way to be
sane is to embrace your insanity. When you feel
guilty about being sad, remember Walt Disney
was a manic depressive. Everything I said
could be totally wrong.

Mills’ intent is not to make a statement but to ask questions, to make people more curious: “I hope the things I make can grow on people over time. At first it is just a drawing of cracks, then later, after living with the design you have more personal associations with it, it means more things, it becomes more emotional.”

Mike Mills is widely renown as a graphic artist and filmmaker. He has been defined as one of the creative visionaries of our times, responsible for album covers and music videos for bands such as the Beastie Boys, Sonic Youth, Beck and Air. Mills has directed various commercials, music videos, and short films and his first feature film, Thumbsucker, adapted by Mills from the homonymous novel by Walter Kirn will be released this fall.

As a graphic designer, Mills designed the famous X-Girl logo and shirts graphics, Kim Gordon and Daisy Von Furth’s clothing company, as well as skateboard graphics for Supreme, Stereo and Subliminal. For Marc Jacobs he designed scarves and fabrics, and other fashion related graphics for Esprit and The Gap.
