Molly Crabapple’s Week in Hell

What is Molly Crabapple’s Week in Hell?

To celebrate my 28th birthday, I’m renting a room, locking myself inside for five days, covering the walls with paper, and filling every inch of that paper with art. I might go insane, or it might be awesome. I’m inviting you along for the ride.

I’m interested in what happens when an artist leaves their studio, their cliches, and their comfort zone and draws beyond the limits of their endurance. I also want to see what tarts and squidbeasts look like frollicking on a massive scale.

During the week, amazing photographer Steve Prue will be documenting the art created, my increasing insanity, and the cast of muses, musicians and miscreants that comes to keep me company. We’ll wrap this up into an art book, Molly Crabapple’s Week in Hell, with a forward by Transmetropolitan creator Warren Ellis.
