waits in a lonely room
for your loving email
Molly Crabapple, who draws like Aubrey Beardsley if Aubrey Beardsley was a world-travelled dancing girl and NYC agent provocateur, has a gallery showing at Jigsaw in Manhattan on Feb 11 called TARTS AND FLOWERS — actually, the final show at Jigsaw before John Brodrick Jones (formerly the benjones) moves the store into the southern US.
Now, aside from that you should attend the show if you’re local, Molly’s pre-selling the exhibited works at a nice discount, right here at this linky bit.
So, if you buy a piece, it’ll go into the show with a little red dot on it, and it’ll be sent out to you on February 28, the day the show closes. I believe Molly’s recently illustrated for the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Playgirl, so this isn’t your amateur show here. You’re picking up work by a major new illustrator for relative peanuts.
That’s my good deed for the day done. I’m off to write comics, drown puppies and pick up loose women now.
Yes, loose women can apply by email.
