About Mitra

Mitra Farmand

Mitra Farmand is a cartoonist from Brookline, Massachusetts.  In 2013 she graduated from The Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, VT, so don’t worry, she’s certified to draw cartoons.

She has a degree in history from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

She doesn’t like referring to herself in the third person, so she’s switching to the first person.

People often ask me if I have a cat and if I’m a vegetarian.  No to both those things.  Apparently I look like a cat-owning vegetarian.

I don’t like the zoo or buttons.  If you see someone wearing a button down shirt at the zoo, that is not me.  I like  supply closets, dogs, and bicycles.  I always put two spaces after a period because that’s how I learned and I can’t get my fingers to stop doing that.  I’ve had cartoons published in The New Yorker.

I sell little books of cartoons, drawings, and autobiographical awkwardness, tote bags with worried animals on them, cards, stickers, prints, dioramas, tattoos, and magnets.  Here’s my Etsy site.

My Twitter handle is @mitra_farmand.  On Instagram, I’m @mitra farmand2.
