Elise Gravel has a passion for entertaining children with funny and endearing characters. She wants children to enjoy the world and explore it– but learn something along the way. She knows how to explain experiences which children are living through in a way that is easy for them to understand. Using her trademark comic style, she connects with her audience while translating sensitive topics. Gravel’s understanding of how kids act and feel allows her to sympathize with what they may be going through. She offers free posters for parents, teachers and professional organizations that allow them to communicate about life, world events, and emotions in a simple way where a child can make a quick visual connection and feel understood. Clients include: Harper Collins, Drawn + Quarterly, Macmillan, Volkswagen, Klutz, Doodle Jump, Publications International, Parents Magazine, La Pasteque.
