Emily says: I am Emily van den Heever, Web designer and Illustrator in Brooklyn, NYC. I love all things creative and imaginative! When I create characters they are not 2D - they are created with personalities, histories, and busy little lives! Wee Bear was inspired by a little wooden bear carving. It is the beginning of a children's book about a poor displaced bear that keeps finding all sorts of strange things in his woods. It's main goal is to bring attention to an early age audience of how we always can help do out part to keep human hands from interfering in our animals natural habitats.
