Do you ever get halfway through the afternoon, 4.75 cups of java deep into the day already, only to find yourself inexorably seduced by the siren song of Starbucks' latest sugar-sweet contraption to ravage dental records across the country? And do you then find yourself vibrating uncontrollably with coffee jitters half an hour later, sorely regretting your inability to stick to your own limits? We feel you, and so does Karla Monterrosa.

Karla Monterrosa is an illustrator and animator from San Salvador, El Salvador. Her feminist art balances a whimsical style with subversive themes and content. Her work has been featured on Huffington Post and Gem Magazine, and she has worked on projects for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the Hollywood Pantages Theater—not to mention rad websites and magazines like ours! Karla's comic for gets published once a month.
