FALL FORWARD

Molly O’ Connell:

Printmaker and comics artist Molly O’Connell has been up to all sorts of things, and most recently shot a music video for the group Witch Hat, inspired by the film Steel Magnolias. We sat on the set for a little jabber. (Jasmine Sarp)

City Paper: What do you like about fall?

Molly O’Connell: I feel like people aren’t fighting. In the summer, there’s this struggle of fighting nature, but in the fall, there’s harmony and everyone wants to be outside all the time.

CP: What are you excited for?

MO: I’m excited about the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, and I’m excited about The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye, and Puss Fust, and Halloween.
