Molly Crabapple

Molly Crabapple

Molly Crabapple is an award-winning artist, writer and the founder of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School.
Molly learned to draw in a Parisian bookstore. She later drew her way through Morocco and Kurdistan, and once into a Turkish jail. Back in New York, she got her first illustration job doing covers for SCREW Magazine. She now wields her drawing pen for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Playgirl, as well as jugglers, fire-eaters, and blogs that sell used panties. Equally adept at drawing sexy dames, whimsical kids illustrations and biting editorial, Molly would very much like to wield her pen for your project. Despite an "erotic" sense of humor, Molly has illustrated a children's book for Umbrelly Press, and is working on a second.
Molly's equally known for her fine art. Her surreal, sexy Victoriana hangs in lowbrow galleries across the country, as well as at the Coney Island Museum and the Museum of American Illustration. She's had several solo shows- all scandelous.
While her high-school novel is thankfully confined to oblivion, Molly writes smart-aleck essays for places like NY Press, Punk Planet,, Coagula Arts Journal, and a monthly column for Art Calendar.
During college, Molly worked as an art model, appearing scantily-clad (if at all) on, SuicideGirls and Lowrider. Because of this, she makes lists like NY Post's "25 Sexiest New Yorkers". and Fleshbot's "Top Ten Hotties of 2005." She's danced burlesque and eaten fire in dive bars in New York, New Jersey and Boston, once opening for the Dresden Dolls. Yes, she gets strange emails.
In December 2005, Molly founded Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School. Disappointed by the dull life drawing classes she'd posed for, Molly built Dr. Sketchy's on the principles of fair pay for models and boozy fun for all. Artists draw burlesque dancers, compete in contests, and win liquor and prizes. Dr. Sketchy's scooped up copious media love from places like The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Village Voice, BBC, WNBC, The New Yorker, Nikkei Trendy (Japan), The San Francisco Chronicle, La Republicca (Italy), the National Post (Toronto), and countless other media outlets across the world.
In July 2006, Dr. Sketchy's went from Brooklyn event to international franchise. Sister Sketchy's have sprung up in twenty-five cities across the world, including in Hollywood, London, Edinburgh, Rome, Toronto, Tokyo, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland. These Dr. Sketchy's receive juicy press devotion of their own.Molly's first book, Dr. Sketchy's Official Rainy Day Colouring Book, was released by Sepulculture Publishing in December 2006. You should buy a copy. Sepulculture is also releasing the Dr. Sketchy's 2008 Pinup Calender
