Richard "Dick" Gordon Guindon is an American cartoonist best known for his gag panel, Guindon. Guindon's cartoons have appeared in the Minneapolis Tribune, The Realist and the Detroit Free Press. During the late 1950s, Guindon attended the University of Minnesota where he drew cartoons for The Minnesota Daily, as recalled by Stan Gotlieb: In the campus newspaper, The Minnesota Daily, a young, brash, twisted and immensely talented cartoonist named Dick Guindon put out social commentary in a Jules Feiffer vein but with more bite. I had first met Guindon when I was still in high school. Some friends took me to a storefront in east Saint Paul, owned by Dick's mother, where he had painted the walls black, put candles in old bottles, and installed a hi-fi and a toaster oven for heating frozen pizza. There, in the Jazz Lab, we were introduced to Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Thelonious Monk and other greats of jazz through their LP recordings. Guindon's most ubiquitous cartoon character was a student he called Huggermugger, who went around with bushy hair and a long beard, wearing an overcoat that was held together by a giant safety pin. Huggermugger was an enemy of pretention.
