Artist Behind ‘I’m With Coco’ Image Gets Paid


Artist Mike Mitchell is learning what it's like to be Shepard Fairey, and he's getting paid. His unofficial "I'm With Coco" graphic, which he originally posted to Twitpic, has been purchased by Conan's "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour" as the tour's official image. Mitchell did not disclose exactly how much he was paid by the tour, but went so far as to say that he has been taken care of. Mitchell has also raised $25,000 for the Haiti earthquake relief effort by selling clothing bearing the image. [TMZ]
