Elise Gravel illustrations. WE LOVE THEM!
Elise Gravel ‘s work is an ongoing lesson that we live in a society in which we are all different, but equal.
After completing her studies in graphic design, Elise Gravel found herself quickly swept up into the glamorous world of illustration. Branching out as a children’s book illustrator was a natural progression in her career. From an early age, Elise was obsessed with reading anything and everything, from cereal boxes to Archie comics to The Adventures of Tintin.
Still a kid at heart, Elise is filled with a childlike sense of wonder that allows her to infuse her work with humor and creativity that speaks directly to young minds. She is inspired by social causes and enticed by projects that can handle a good dose of eccentricity.
Elise loves creating quirky characters and teaching kids to embrace the qualities that make them different.
Through thoughtful storytelling, Elise helps us understand the world as it is and the power we have to shape the future. She is the author-illustrator of over thirty books for children, including La clé à molette, which won the prestigious Governor General’s Literary Award in her native Canada. Her other books include the popular Disgusting Critters series, available in 8 countries, and the middle grade graphic novel series, Olga. Elise is also the illustrator behind the popular app, Doodle Jump.
And finally, the best part of the post. On her website, you can find a lot of free printable for teachers and parents.
