Occupy Wall Street illustrations by Molly Crabapple

American artist and author, Molly Crabapple, took part in the one-year anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street Movement last week which saw Lower Manhattan once again transformed into a city under siege. Crabapple was ‘inspired to see people care passionately about inequality issues’ and rallied with thousands of other protesters. Like many, Molly was arrested and held for 10 hours in a prison cell. ‘Getting arrested for a social protest is like being put through aversion therapy’, she noted. She has since produced illustrations describing the experience, including her arrest, and promoting the ethos of the movement that has won her over. ‘I would protest again’, she says.
