Much of the artwork featured in the 2006 film Art School Confidential was produced by practicing visual artists with art careers independent of the film. The figurative drawings and paintings made by the main character Jerome (Played by Max Minghella) were created by Caitlin Mitchell-Dayton, an Oakland, California painter and long-time professor at the San Francisco Art Institute. The work of the character Marvin Bushmiller (Played by Adam Scott) was created by musician and Devo member Mark Mothersbaugh, who is also a painter with a long exhibition record independent of his involvement with the film. The paintings made by the character Jonah (Played by Matt Keeslar) was produced by Oakland, California artist and graphic novelist Daniel Clowes, creator of the short comic on which the film was based as well as the author of its screenplay and co-producer.
