Jet Pens sent me a pack of new ink toys- nibs, brush pens, little niggly things that I can cross-hatch to death with. Tested out a few on this sketch of Aaron Peters of UK Uncut (a movement of young Brits protesting against health and education cuts that continuously both inspires me and makes me throw my hands up at US protest culture).
I'm Molly Crabapple, an artist and writer in New York. My art show, Shell Game, was covered by press including New Republic, Rolling Stone, Fast Company, Wired, and The American Reader. My work can be found in the permanent collections of the New York Historical Society, the Rubin Museum of Art, and the Groucho Club. I've published several books, including Discordia (with Laurie Penny), and the forthcoming Straw House. I write a monthly column for VICE, and my essays have appeared at CNN, The Paris Review and Jacobin.
