Inside Molly Crabapple's Week in Hell
Share this post
A month ago we set out to a secret location to track down artist Molly Crabapple, who was shacked up in a hotel room covering the walls in vibrant illustrations. Upon our arrival, she was already five days into the artistic endurance test she referred to as her "Week In Hell." While Molly was understandably exhausted —a few hours before we arrived she had passed out on the floor! — it was amazing to see what she produced during her period of self-internment, sometimes drawing upwards of 16 hours a day.
One of the most amazing aspects of Molly's project is that every inch of doodle-covered wall space was eventually dissected, and mailed to backers piece-by-piece. Keep an eye out for the mailman carrying the squiggly platypus drawing (or the head of a famous pornstar), and check out our behind-the-scenes video above.
