Congrats Molly! You've done some outstanding work. I look forward to kickstarting future projects you may have planned.
Unbelievable body of work! You are a true artist of the 21st Century. Beautiful in so many ways and on so many levels. Thank you.
Hi Gary! We havent! Basically, its been a bit more challenging that we thought to hook up a venue, and we can't print the postcards (whcih go with the million dollar bill) until we have an address and date. Sorry for the delay and thank you so much for the support. As soon as the postcards are printed up, they're going out
Was wondering if you started mailing out the chip and $1mil bills yet? Love your work!
Oh. My. God! Truly inspired and magnificent. Thank you.

you got our support.
Molly, I have so enjoyed watching as you have developed these pieces and am so happy I could be a small part of your support system. Thanks for sharing your insights and right on views of this crazy world we live in today! Keep up the great work, I hope I can be in NYC when you have the show!
love the Transmet smiley face!
Ah, well that explains the speed...OCD in action. Wonderful vision birthed in real-time by a bare footed, smelly, wild maned tiny pixie. It makes the scale of the pieces so much more amazing and appreciated more. No distractions please..artist at work.
Molly, you and your works are continually awesome.
Molly, these new medic pics are luscious and scary. Your portraits are ruthless and right-on. I'm amazed that you can keep at this. You are over-the-top!
I love your updates Molly! They're so exciting!
Mol - I hardly think you could EVER look like a hell-troll --- but i get the working in comfort thing. nice perk for artists ;0 --- love the new concept re:healthcare. plse let me put a plug in tho' for all of the nurses,doctors,technicians,surgeons....they are there with and for the patients. any and all abuses are the insurance companies number one, followed by big pharma, big medical devices, big personal injury litigation. doctors learn and must practice what is called "defensive medicine". As in, they have to order hundreds of needless tests to "defend" against future possible legal judgments against them. The insurance companies always have an excuse to cover nothing, charge exorbitant prices for premiums, smiling wolfish whilst they grind the knife in your back. Medicine is a difficult, challenging, demanding and heartbreaking field. It is also a humbling honor to assist people in true times of need. Just some two-penny thoughts as you move forward on your piece....love you and your work !
Wow! You keep blowing me away! Thank you for all the updates and pics of pics. I feel closer to greatness.
Great point Kat! I will try my best. Jason, thank you so much!!
I love, love, love this! I wish I was closer and able to see the finale in person! I wish I had enough cash to have supported you enough to get an original piece! This whole project is AWESOME in the truest sense of the word and I look forward to every update! Keep it up!
This is an awesome project and I'm delighted to be a part of it! Would you consider scheduling the opening on a weekend, so it'll be easier for us out-of-towners to join you?
I tried doing timelapse on the first one, and there are two reasons I probably won't do another
1. The videos take forever- like 100 hours
2. I like to work in my underwear looking kind of like a hell-troll, and I don't want it saved on the internet for posterity
Sorry! Maybe I'll try with the last one
Just wondering if you might be able to do some time-lapse vids when you work on the 6 foot x 4 foot pieces, as it'd be really cool to see the whole process from start to finish and how they take shape =]
Would have pledged more, but I am totally brokesville. Also if you need help schlepping stuff and/or setting up, I am more than willing to help out.
I am so amazed by your creativity, simply inspiring!! Cant wait to see how each piece develops!
It just keeps getting better and better, Molly! The GABM is incredible and Hivemind is already even more amazing! Can't wait to see what #3 is going to look like!
I only wish I had more money so I could back this at a higher level. It is such a pleasure to see great art being created, and even more thrilling that it is great revolutionary art as well. THANK YOU.
Sisyphus and Tantalus -- images of capitalism from the Dreamtime of the ancient world. Good idea. Meanwhile, I like what I see here! Also the bubble-octopus-woman thing.
in regard to The American Dream/student loans you might evoke the myth of Sisyphus - a very clever Greek god that eventually was "put to work" endlessly (frustratingly).
Re: Stephen- Thank you so much for your beautiful words ,and the amazing work you're doing in your daughter's memory
Re: Justin- So glad you saw my cover of the Anthology. I was so honored when Stephen used my work. Thanks for supporting this project!
@Shimmergeek - LOVE CATS! :)
Molly - thank you for speaking out on this important issue. I'm a poet, and I saw your art on the cover of the OWS poetry anthology, and wondered if you had any new work on the topic. Glad to see that you do. Art and artists are important.
Dear Molly Crabapple, artist extraordinaire:
I love what you do and just found out about your project, today. I have a question regarding shipping of the prints, I wonder if there is an additional fee for shipping to Monterrey, Mexico. (if there is a need to add shipping tho my reward level as i couldn't find info on this at the kickstarter page. )
Thanks, and congratulations on your project getting funded!
Re: Adrian- sure. Can you message me and we'll swap out something else from your package in return for a giclee.
Very much looking forward to your success. Do you have any options for someone who would like a giclee print but backed a higher priced option that doesn't include one?
Hi Molly, our daughter Sylvia was an activist and an artist but never got to realize most of her dreams as she was killed riding her bike to work in Cleveland 9/15/09 four months after college graduation (see www.sylviabinghamfund.org) so my wife and I wanted to help you a little bit to realize your dream. If other support is needed later, let us know. We might provide support through the fund.
