“Occupy Memory” in The New York Review

Molly reflects on the Occupy Wall Street Movement on its ten year anniversary in The New York Review. “A decade ago, a grassroots anti-capitalist movement burst on the scene, galvanizing people with its slogan “We are the 99 percent.” It changed me, and many others, but how much did it change the world?”

Devil in the Details art book

“I have become convinced that Molly Crabapple was sent by the devil to seduce us all into art”- Neil Gaiman

Fine artist, illustrator, and comics creator Molly Crabapple captures the absurdity of modern life in intricate, theatrical detail in her fine art work, drawing inspiration from politics, polite (and not-so-polite) society, and hundreds of years of literature. Her work is burlesque-inspired in the broadest definition of the word – deftly satirizing the powerful with adorably sinister animals, steampunk-tinged machinery, and of course, beautiful girls. But it's not all fantastical – when Occupy Wall Street broke out, Molly was there, capturing the immediacy of the revolutionary feeling in pen and ink. In a new 48-page book from IDW, you can get Molly's art in gorgeous full-color, work that's decorated glamorous nightclubs, museums and galleries, and protest signs and occupied spaces around the country. Comedian Margaret Cho contributes the forward.

Book will come signed by Molly Crabapple.

2021 – Year in Review
