I came across this NY writer and illustrator last year, when researching new inspiring artists. Her videos have had great impact on me at the time, as they address serious social issues in a very powerful way. Most of these videos focus on injustice towards minorities in the United States.

Molly also illustrates war zones in Syria, referencing mobile photos by an anonymous source that she collaborates with.

Molly is a very talented and inspiring artist, and I will return to her work from time to time to see how she is evolving.
