Filled to the brim with vibrant felt marker illustrations, If Found... is not just an exhibition of Gravel's work, but a challenge to young artists to keep a daily sketchbook. She reveals her top tips to becoming a successful illustrator--practice! practice! practice!--while empowering young artists to face their fears of making "ugly drawings." Stop worrying about what makes a drawing good or bad--Elise draws anything and everything and you can too!
