People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

Ladies & Gentleman , The Ever so Fabulous and Unbelievably Genuine and Sweet like candy , 



As , I expressed in a previous blog where I introduced the very 1st " Zuri Doll " , I wanted to share with you , one of many Zuri Dolls where I illustrate all the ensembles she rocks , and when I say she ROCKS them , she does .... ;)

She is a Fashionista straight through to her soul , she just knows what looks good , no what looks AMAZING on her , she's got this urban , edgy , fun & flirty sophistication , she exudes class and with that beautiful SMILE she wears on her face , it's inevitable for anyone who is blessed to be touched by her presence to just fall in love with her easy going and sweet spirit. I am personally blessed to call her my friend. 



To get a glimpse into her world , visit her Fantabulous Website where she talks about a lil bit of everything , Fashion , Fitness , Her Dreams  , What's on her mind , etc ....

Grafitti-fication of GC Dolls

Grafitti-fication of GC Dolls

Everything as you all know inspires me , I am an avid collector of magazines , my favorites being , VOGUE , Harpers BAZAAR , Glamour , WMagazine ,  collect them all , gathering inspiration from what I see on the runways of Milan , Paris and my beloved NYC ..... Drawing to me comes extremely natural to me , my favorite medium < > black sharpie marker and plain ol' white paper. Every single magazine I own has been reread over a gazillion times , bc you never know what you may have missed. Every models face that has graced the pages of these glamour books are an inspiration for a next illustration of a Grafitti Couture Doll .

GC Illustration Pish Posh Mish 


I have followed the Fashion World for as long as I can remember , I take great delight in heading to the nearest Rite Aid and purchasing the latest fashion mags , it's my secret guilty pleasure. The aromas that fill  these pages , ahhhhh >>>>> throws me into a pool of ideas and inspiration , always with a black marker , sketchbook and my artist must have , my hot cup of coffee , I am ready for my blissful magazine experience. It is here where my IMAGINATION is set free , bc it's now my interpretation of all these beautiful faces , colours , textures , prints and aromas that all meld together and help me create my  Grafitti Couture Dolls.


Well, now I must go and sketch , grafitti-fy and colorize them and get them ready to share with you.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a looksie ! 

Lots of Love and Keep Creating !

More Grafitti Stickers

One of the things I love about stickers , is that you can put them just about anywhere and use them for whatever reason. I personally love to seal an envelope with a GC's Couture Stickers or seal a fabulous gift for a friend. It just makes a simple something a lil sassier :) 

Inspiring Quote for Thursday

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

- Woodrow Wilson

Be as happy as you want to be in a world gone mad. Be as safe as you want to be in a world that is afraid of everything. Be as healthy as you want to be in a world that is mostly sick. Don’t let the statistics that someone else created affect you.

It's Never Too Late .... Dream Those DREAMS !


NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS ! 



I feel so blessed to be able to create once again. Being that since I was born , I was made to create , to inspire and to love , to love what I do so passionately ! I feel so blessed that my father , Mr.Jorge E. Forero , the man that just simply lit up every time I created a new lil drawing , painting or illustration , the man that never let me forget what " a talent " I was, and to never let your "talents" go to waste. Back in June 2010 , he gave me the GIFT of a lifetime , he gave me my creation station  , equipped with my iMac , Wacom Tablet and PhotoShop. Thank you daddi , thank you for DREAMING BIG for me , when I couldn't , thank you for never GIVING up on me when I thought you should. Thank you for always BELIEVING in me. I love you more than life itself. Thank you for making who I am today. I am  PROUD to be your daughter and PROUD you are my daddi.



Creating after 10 years , that my imagination lay dormant because I was doing the wife and mommi thing , ( which has been the most rewarding and amazing time of my life ) but there was always something missing and that was my outlet of expression. I live and breathe ART , I live and breathe to create. My Inspiration lies in everything , my loving husband Todd that has stood by me through thick and thin , that has been my supporter & encouraged me to dream and chase this dream , for giving me my babies that are the light of my eyes , the lil beings that make me want to aspire to BIGGER & BETTER things , that continually challenge me to strive for more, for them  , my m4 ( my children ) ,  Life , Fashion , Music , Beauti , Art and day to day experiences are the musings for my creations. I am a lucky lady , I have a beautiful family , great friends and a neverending will to SUCCEED.


And a HUGE Thank U to my Mentor , my BFF , my soul sister The InFamous Elaine Biss , Feminine Illustrator Extraordinaire. Thank you for INSPIRING me , thank you for pushing me , for being there always , making me laugh uncontrollably , teaching me the fundamentals of illustration today , for being the sister I never had , for our endless conversations about LIFE and everything else in between. I am so PROUD of all your SUCCESSES and share in the delight of seeing you shine. 


Finally meeting you this month was such a DREAM come true , to finally HUG my sister from another mother , to finally see your face in person and actually spend real time with you and hold your hand. Everything has come full circle. Thank you , Thank you , Thank you . I love you with all my heart. 

Much Love & Happiness , 

E xox

Grafitti Couture ™ Madamoiselle Jacqueline


When I was a little girl , I had a slight fascination with the name Jacqueline . My mother bought me a doll with the name Jacqueline , she had a barbie-esque way about her but she wasn't a Barbie per say , she just was this absolutely gorgeous , exquisite woman. So tapping into my memory I created my version of Madamoiselle Jacqueline.
Madamoiselle Jacqueline is a classy , sophisticated fashion icon. She is up on the latest trends and is always ready to go on a day of shopping. Donning a classic smokey eye to bring out the blue in her eyes and a fancy red lip , she is ready for work or a night out on the town. 


 hope you like my new Grafitti Couture Doll. Many more beauties to come :) Stay tuned !
Much Love ,
Elizabeth

GC for ZMC . The Zuri Doll .


I have had the pleasure and honor to meet my Muse ... Zuri McDaniels .

The Zuri Doll is hip , classy , sophisticated , stylish , brilliant , outgoing , fun and flirty , all qualities that the Real Zuri embodies. I can tell you she is as beautiful in person as you see her in pictures and when I mean Beautiful , I mean that as gorgeous as her exterior is , her heart and her soul are of sheer beauty. I suggest that you go and check out her websitewww.zurimcdaniels.com and follow her @ www.twitter.com/zurimcdaniels.com and then you will know , " where it's at !!!

Inside Grafitti Couture™ .....


Grafitti Couture is an extension of my ARTwork .Girli-esque Grafitti Inspired by Fashion , Beauti , Music and Style . Grafitti Couture is a collection of fashionable and stylish chic's I have created , each with their own unique personality . People have asked me what drives me to create , and my only answer is .... I Draw the Beauti I See In Music . Music moves me , my illustrations are languidly lined to the crazy beats of a tune.
I have been an ARtist all my life , I can remember being four years old sketching my father with a black bic pen , I drew him with such detail , the screws in his glasses , the stitching of his shirt ..... I do pay close attention to detail , a passion for creation and a unique eye for design.

I feel what sets me apart from other artists is I draw from my soul , no barriers , No Fear .... Illustrations just dance in my mind and I just set them Free .
I hope you enjoy my ARTwork and please feel free to to leave a comment , I always respond ( well I will try to ) If you would like me to create a custom illustration please feel free to email me @ GrafittiCouture@yahoo.com. Copyright © 2011. Grafitti Couture All rights reserved.
