The Customer is Always Wrong

2017, Mimi Pond

Mimi Pond is an American cartoonist, comics artist, illustrator, humorist, and writer.

Pond spent much of the ‘80s and ‘90s writing for television, magazines, and creating cartoons and comic strips for both mediums.

She briefly worked on The Simpsons, writing the first full-length broadcast episode, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire" in 1989, which was nominated for two Emmy awards. Pond, however, did not become a regular member of the writing team, and she alleged it was because the showrunner at the time did not want a woman on the team. She is primarily a cartoonist and illustrator and she got her first big break as a weekly cartoonist with Spectator Magazine. Some of her other early work during the 1980s included creating for publications such as, the National Lampoon, The Village Voice, The New York Times, Adweek, and others. She is the author and illustrator of five humor books and currently contributes to the Los Angeles Times. She won the PEN Center USA award for Graphic Literature Outstanding Body of Work, with a special mention for her 2014 graphic novel, Over Easy, for Canadian publisher Drawn & Quarterly. Pond also won an Inkpot Award in 2014 at the San Diego Comic-Con, after the release of Over Easy.
