Satan in bold pink?
Mexico's own Violeta Venganza began drawing at three years old, or at least that's what her mother told her. These strikingly feminine images burst forth from Venganza's love of fashion, the '70s, and everyday situations. A student of the University of Arts in Aguascalientes, Venganza now spends her days in a balancing act. She works illustrating, drawing, and sewing clothes, while also eating, drinking, and watching movies.

Do you believe in ghosts?
"Yeeees, I have seen and heard strange things, especially in my old house."
Do you believe in aliens?
"Of course. In fact, I like to believe in them. I like the idea of alternate and strange worlds. I make illustrations of women that have the facial structure of a typical alien."
Venganza's favorite mediums are markers and lithography. She even uses beeswax with ink pigments to create unique hues. Each of her pieces is brought to life with pencils, watercolors, pens, brushes, colored pencils, and the pad on her computer.
Venganza doesn't have a personal mantra, but believes in the power of words and mind. As a big fan of fashion, one of her biggest geek-out moments was when an illustration of hers was retweeted by Marc Jacobs.
Some of Venganza's biggest influences have been Bambiachi, Laura Laine, and painter Mark Ryden.
Venganza spends her nights in her own head. She has trouble sleeping, because her mind does not stop. Sometimes she goes out with friends to listen to music.
