Caroline Leigh Smith has drawn diary comics since June 2014. They are posted on her Instagram feed @monkcomics. She also makes comics and zines about cats, robots, and other dumb stuff. In addition to comics and zines, Caroline makes stickers and enamel pins. She sells regularly at zine fests, comicons, and art events, where you're welcome to buy her a beer or just say hello.
“Monk” is the pet name Caroline’s parents bestowed upon her at young age and still use. Why? We don't know.
PERSONALLY Caroline Smith works in marketing and graphic design by day. She is an avid and experienced knitter as well as a total science nerd. She lives in Greenville, South Carolina with her husband Scott Hensel, a fellow cartoonist, and their two cats, Lucy and Percival. See Scott’s work here.
