The Birds and the Bees by Joy Holdsworth

Design By:
Inspired by the beautiful countryside, the spectacular mountain scenery and amazing variety New Zealander and Australia has to offer, I decided to start an instagram illustration page called bee happy planet. When you travel, you find yourself sprouting roots as you go, leaving you feeling connected to different parts of the world. Here I began my creative journey, whilst also journeying across Oceania. Through illustration, I try and evoke a a sense of connection with the natural world. With that comes a connection to one’s self. I’m an advocate for the environment and I create with the hope it reminds people we are part of a beautiful planet and we must take care of our home.

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

This poster design has a simple, loving message. We must take care of our beautiful planet, and all the inhabitants. Bees are declining, birds are loosing their habitats, wildflowers are becoming rare - we are in troubling times. Me, and many others I hope, love the planets diversity and want to protect all it has to offer. - Joy Holdsworth
