London and Dublin Week in Hell Signings

Posted by Molly Crabapple (Creator)

Hey comrades!  I’m going to be doing speaking gigs/ Week in Hell signings in London and Dublin next week!  Deets below.  I’m so very excited to see you.  London is one of my favorite cities in the world, and this will be my first time in Dublin.  

Molly Crabapple in Conversation with Ana Finel Honigman 
Thursday, April 26, 7:30 pm
The Groucho Club 
45 Dean Street, London, W1D 4QB  
FREE.  Open to the public, but RSVP is mandatory.   
Limited places are available - please RSVP to

We’ll be discussing Week in Hell, art, politics, crowd-funding, elitism, and what it’s like to be locked in a hotel room.  Ana is a brilliant arts journalist and I’m so honored that she’s able to interview me.

DUBLINMolly Crabapple on Art and Entrepreneurship
Sunday, April 29, 2012
Centre for Creative Practises 15 Pembroke Street Lower Dublin 2
 Members €10 / Non-members €12.  Book tickets HERE

I’ll be talking about art, money, fame, DIY, how the future belongs to self-sufficiant multi-media mutants, and why none of the gatekeepers know what is going on.  If you ever wanted to ask me a question on how I do what I do, this is the place for it.

I can’t wait to meet you guys!  Come, tell your friends, and ask questions.  I may, possibly, be hiding some prints in seekrit locations in London and Dublin.  If I don’t forget

New Kickstarter- Shell Game

Posted by Molly Crabapple (Creator)

While I acknowlege it's absolutely unclassy to go people who have already generously given me money and say "how about some more?", I also thought you might like my new kickstarter.

Yesterday I launched Shell Game, a crowd-funded art show about the financial meltdown, on Kickstarter.  For Shell Game, I'll create 9 giant paintings about the collapses and upheavals of the last year, then rig out storefront like a gambling parlor and display them to the city and the internet for a week.  Shell Game is also an attempt to see if there's a way to fund big, time consuming art without depending on rich collectors- a way of finding Medici in the crowd.

Check it out here

Hope some of you might like it, and thank you so much for your support

Week in Hell- the Book Available for Pre-order

Posted by Molly Crabapple (Creator)

The Art of Molly Crabapple Volume 1: Week in Hell has a sparse little page up on Amazon for pre-order.  Our fancy Clayton Cubitt shot cover should be up in the next few weeks.  If you would like to order it, it will be shipping out at the end of March.

Note: IDW is the publisher of this book, not me, so that means stuff like shipping, pricing, and whether your local store stocks the book are out of my hands.  However, you should totally ask your local comics and book stores to stock this book.

Which brings me to: Do you own a comics store or book store?  IDW is doing solicitations for The Art of Molly Crabapple Volume 1: Week in Hell and you should totally order copies.  If you are in NYC or London or anywhere else I am traveling post-March, I will come by your store and sign all the copies and draw fetching doodles in the flyleaves.
