About Mimi Pond

Mimi Pond is a cartoonist, illustrator, humorist and writer. Her graphic memoir, "The Customer is Always Wrong," will be published by Drawn and Quarterly in Spring 2017. It is the long-awaited 400 pages+ sequel to 2014's "Over Easy," which detailed her post-art school waitressing career in the late 1970s in Oakland Ca. "Over Easy" garnered a tremendous critical response, a place on the New York Times Best Seller List, the PEN Center USA award for Graphic Literature Outstanding Body of Work, and an Inkpot Award from Comic Con International in San Diego.

Pond has also produced a mug that both promotes and celebrates the title of her new book. You can find it at http://www.fishseddy.com/the-customer-is-always-wrong-mug.html

Pond has created comics for the Los Angeles Times, Seventeen Magazine, National Lampoon, and many other publications too numerous to mention, along with five humor books. She has also written for television: her credits include the first full length episode of the Simpsons, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire" in 1989, and episodes for the television shows "Designing Women" and "Pee Wee's Playhouse". She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, the painter Wayne White.
