Blogger Series: Monika

This past month I've been working on a mini series of blogger sketches. I'm excited to be able to introduce each of these ladies to you through my Illustrations.

First up:

Meet Monika of!

+VioletRoots is your new go to blog for Creativity prompts, Music recommendations, Style tips and more! ~

Monika of Violet Roots Blog - Fashion Illustration

Here’s the low-down from Monika herself!

1- What City/State are you based out of?

Monika- I live in a suburb in the NYC area. 

2- How would you describe your blog?

Monika- My blog, Violet Roots (, is a lifestyle blog with a focus on music, style and creativity.

3-Where do you find inspiration?

Monika: I find inspiration from all over. Sometimes it's in a song, an experience or in a particular color and in other times it's just a feeling. I'm an abstract artist and sometimes the paintings I make also lend themselves to ideas for the blog.

4-How would you describe your personal style?

Monika: My personal style is definitely focused on comfort, details, and experimentation. I love wearing vivid colors and interesting pieces like green cowboy boots or blue and green fur vests and jackets. It's fun to try new looks but I usually always try my best to be comfortable too. It's rare that you'll find me in heels. I'm usually wearing combat boots.

If you know me in person you already know about my obsession with Instagram. As a fashion Illustrator, many of my favorite accounts to follow are Fashion Bloggers. I love having a feed full of inspiration. Naturally, when I see a great outfit or photo I have to sketch it!

Today I want to introduce you to three awesome fashion accounts!

[Ordered only by date of sketch and all equally cool!]
