The Quarantine Tapes, NACLA Cover

Molly’s artwork is on this months cover of the NACLA Report (North American Congress on Latin America). NACLA is “an independent, nonprofit organization founded in 1966 that works toward a world in which the nations and peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean are free from oppression and injustice”

Molly also joined Paul Holdengräber for the latest episode of The Quarantine Tapes . They sat down (distantly, but still together) to discuss “Jewish Identity and how art can be used as a means to draw closer to the people and places we love. Molly also shares her thoughts on the current state of New York City, where she lives, and what might become of it after the pandemic.”

The Faces of Our Crisis, Radical Housing Journal

Molly’s latest piece documenting essential workers in The Nation, The Faces of Our Crisis, is out now.

“There are many lessons to be learned from this horrible disease, but one is that the people who grow the food and lug the boxes and tend the sick have the power to make the world stand still. As the wildcat strikes across the country show, they are using this power to demand their due for all that they have created”

The #CancelRent poster is also featured on the cover of the Radical Housing Journal, Issue 2.1. Learn more about the Radical Housing Journal HERE

Life and Death, But No Trash Pickup: Diary of a Young COVID-19 Nurse,

by Ryan Gabrielson Illustrations by Molly Crabapple for ProPublica

“When a 27-year-old critical care nurse volunteered for Santa Clara Valley Medical Center’s COVID-19 unit last month, she knew that caring for patients with failing lungs and an untreatable disease would be frightening and heartbreaking. What she didn’t expect was to be shunned by fearful workers in other departments, surrounded by uncollected trash and forced to use up health benefits on a technicality”

Underpaid, Ignored, and Essential: A Coronavirus Sketchbook

Quarantined in my apartment, I put out a call on Twitter saying that I wanted to draw those workers who could not stay at home: delivery people, shelf stockers at grocery stores, nurses, janitors, and cashiers. In the next few hours, more than 50 people wrote to me. I drew these portraits from the selfies they sent me in their work clothes. These are the underpaid, ignored, essential workers who have always made the earth move—and now are forced to risk their lives doing it.”

Sanders Campaign, Episode 3 of “The Zo”

Bernie Sanders takes the stage at a rally in Dearborn.

Mollys latest article and illustrations about the Bernie Sanders campaign is up now on The Nation.

And Episode 3 of The Zo, “Retaliation” is now available.

“In The Zo, prisoners often face retaliation from prison administrators when they file grievances about ever-changing regulations or misconduct they uncover through their documentation. Our final installment explores how,even though administrators encourage incarcerated people to file these grievance forms, those who do are frequently punished for bearing witness with transfers, solitary confinement, or harassment by prison guards.”

The Zo was also the topic of a recent episode of On Point, hosted by Meghna Chakrabarti and David Folkenflik and produced by WBUR for NPR.

“A new series of videos from The Marshall Project takes a look at life inside prison, through the words of prisoners themselves. Patrick Doolittle, Lawrence Bartley, Doran Larson and Molly Crabapple join Jane Clayson.

Time Magazine and “The Zo”

Molly illustrated one of the 100 Time Women of the Year alternate covers. Her portrait of Black Lives Matter founders Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi, is one part of a project honoring 100 years of noteworthy women.

Episodes 1 and 2 of “The Zo” are now live. Illustrated by Molly and narrated by Michael K. Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire), “The Zo” is a three part series for the The Marshall Project and First Look Media’s streaming service, Topic. “The Zo” explores the harsh realities of being incarcerated in America.

WE ARE ALL THINGS available for preorder

Now available for pre-order through Radix Media. We Are All Things is a prose poem by Elliott Colla, illustrated by Egyptian artist Ganzeer, with an introduction by Molly Crabapple.

Elliott Colla’s poetic prose rekindles thoughts of a relationship that has ended. A poem in comics and words, We Are All Things is an extraordinary book that you can read, dream, and find your old love in.” — Ahmed Naji, writer and journalist
