Molly Crabapple

September 1, 2009

Anyone who has been poking around here long enough should know that I like things a little bit racy, a little bit punk-tinged. If Victoriana or steampunk influences are thrown in there, I’m in heaven.

For that reason, Molly Crabapple‘s art instantly enchanted me. Her influences are all over the place, and the result is a mishmash world of burlesque, robots, and fantasy creatures that I just want to dive right into. Tremendously fun and sexy, and also tremendously inspiring.

Molly has just come out with a marvellous comic book, Scarlett Takes Manhattan. She is also the founder of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, a clever mix of burlesque, drinking and drawing. I’m thinking of joining!

Off to buy stripey stockings….
