How to Get a Female Cartoonist on the News, Or At Least on Al Jazeera

Meanwhile...

Molly Crabapple is an artist and political cartoonist (and the founder of the loose international network of Dr Sketchy’s Anti Art School, a mix of burlesque and life drawing with some decidedly geeky interests like Sandman and Transmetropolitan) who’s drawn for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Playgirl, as well as Marvel (in Strange Tales 2 and Girl Comics) and DC (with her steampunk graphic novel Puppet Makers). Yesterday she joined protesters in Manhattan’s financial district in a protest commemorating the one-year anniversary of the beginning of the Zuccotti Park encampment. She was among the more than one hundred people arrested, and naturally made sure she livetweeted the whole process, joining the small ranks of female cartoonists who’ve managed to bring notice to the movement through their art and actions. She was released last night. You can read her tweets here.
