JEFF McMILLIAN - The Mountains Have Red Eyes (I am Lunch?)

Jeff McMillan, Titled “The Mountains Have Red Eyes (I am Lunch?)”, size 7”x 11”
Acrylic on paper, 2009.

Jeff McMillan was born in October of 1977 in San Jose,
CA where he spent a good portion of his life, and it
was during the first few years of Jeff’s existence
that he started trying his hand at art at the young
age of 3. McMillan’s influences lie heavily in 80’s
pop culture. The artist proclaims that the decade
boasted the best television programming, cartoons,
toys, and movies. It was a decade of imagination and
creativity during a time when the world was changing
so drastically on all levels. As he continued to make
use of the right side of his brain, it eventually
became time for McMillan to begin the final stages of
schooling. He attended the Academy of Art in San
Francisco from 1999 to 2001 until he made the big move
to Southern California, where he continued his
schooling at the prestigious Art Center College of
Design, in Pasadena, CA from 2001 to 2004. He studied
illustration at both schools until he graduated from
the Art Center with honors. He now lives and works in
Long Beach with his wonderful wife, Liv and a
disobedient Siamese cat.
