The artist who calls himself emek created this poster to call attention to the fact that the number of honeybees is falling each year. The title of the poster is Why Are All the HoneybEes Disappearing…? The copy on the poster reads “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” While this quote has been attributed to Albert Einstein, it is not documented that he did indeed say it.

The poster is done in silkscreen, and several versions exist.

    This poster is very clever. Extremely detailed with a powerful message. The skulls up in the clouds are a nice touch. This is definitively a poster that would grab my attention if I were to pass it hanging up on a wall. Very good contrast and hierarchy of design elements.
