fuckyouillsingifiwantto asked: Stunning! This gives me a flashback to when I was a kid. You could find these posters for sale and you could color them and display them in your room. Do you sell these? I'm sure they are a pretty penny. That is a lot of time and pure creative soul. Please don't get me wrong in no way do I compare this art to the posters of my youth.
These “posters” are huge drawings created by the Beehive Design Collective in Machias Maine. As of now over fourteen illustrators have worked on the images I’ve posted. You can see our work here: www.beehivecollective.org or contact us here: firstname.lastname@example.org
“The beehive design Collective is a wildly-motivated all-volunteer, art-activist collective dedicated to “cross pollinating the grassroots” by creating collaborative, anti-copyright images for use as educational and organizing tools. We work anonymously as word-to-image translators of complex global stories, gathered through conversations with affected communities.
We distribute educational posters across the Americas, entirely by grassroots, hand-to-hand distribution. Our graphics, workshops, and presentations offer hopeful stories of resiliency from the frontlines of communities impacted by globalization, climate change and resource extraction.”
So, once we finish the ginormous image you see here, we blow it up to make huge educational banners, and shrink them down into large posters for people to take home with and use as they like.
Thanks so much for saying “Hi”, and if you wanted a poster of any of the images, feel free to contact us at the email I posted above. Because we are a nonprofit, everything is run by donations, for a poster we typically request between 10 and 20, but really, whatever you think is fair! So glad you like the work we’re making, and thanks for all your lovely compliments,
All the best,
Chris from the beehive
