Illustration Alumn Hannah Rosengren's Print Goes Viral
An illustration by MECA 2013 grad Hannah Rosengren has gained a lot of attention online over the last several months. When Hannah first shared her illustration "Plant These to Help Save Bees" on her Tumblr last November, it didn't get many hits. But when a nonprofit based in Valencia, Spain got a hold of the image, the illustration was shared over 14,000 times in one night. Since then Hannah has received hundreds of emails from around the world regarding the print and her Etsy account has been so overwhelmed with daily purchases that the young artist has trouble keeping up with them.
"I think people have been so attracted to the image and so inclined to share it because it's something useful and informative" Hannah explains "I wanted to not only make pieces that were aesthetically interesting, but were meaningful to me personally. My growing understanding of colony collapse disorder and an interest in botanical illustration led to "Plant These to Help Save Bees."
