Molly Crabapple

From Sunday Morning, 10:07 am on 20 December 2015

Molly Crabapple has been called the unofficial artist of the occupy movement - one of her posters from the time is now in New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

Her distinctive drawings bring to mind the works of Toulouse-Lautrec, Goya, and the pioneering graphic journalist Joe Sacco.

Crabapple has documented everything from the decadent nightlife of pre-Global Financial Crisis New York to the despair of Guantanamo Bay and the refugee camps of Lebanon.

Her memoir, Drawing Blood, has just been published by HarperCollins.   

She talks to Wallace Chapman.
