Wee Gallery

What do you get when you combine teaching, zoology, graphic design and parenthood? Wee Gallery’s creative cast of black-and-white creatures, that’s what. After the birth of their first child eight years ago, this husband and wife duo discovered there was very little in the way of hand-drawn graphics for babies — and they decided to do something about that.

Whether it’s monkeys, foxes or penguins, Surya draws each stylized animal by hand; the repeating patterns and contrasting colors stimulate babies’ brains, while the non-toxic inks and recycled paper calm parents’ minds. But it’s this family’s passion and drive to create child-focused art that’s the real winning combo here.
