Eye Candy (8)

Eye Candy is early this week. In New York, artist Molly Crabapple has been sketching the #OccupyWallStreet protesters and their signs.

Combining fluid draftsmanship with spontaneous verve, these portraits are both an homage and an argument. Here are real people, they seem to say, with real issues.

And here is their portrait gallery.
