molly crabappleI really love what Molly Crabapple does – her latest effort draws attention to Syrian refugees in Lebanon. Before that she went to Gitmo.

She is doing something important, and using her art to cut through the bullshit and engage with her audience. I think her art has the power to attract people to the conversation who might otherwise avoid it.

Whenever I have read her writing it always communicates in an intelligent way, and she always manages to bring something to the table that might otherwise have been left off the menu – her art is the same. I wish there were more like her out there, which is why I celebrate her, and hope that more people find her and take inspiration from what she does, and echo its spirit in some way.
