LA Girl: Molly Schiot

Molly is my neighbor and I love her to pieces. She’s cool and foxy without being obnoxious. You want to be her friend and she doesn’t make you jealous. When I asked her to elaborate on the list below, she said, “I don’t think I need to say anything about them. I’ll sound cheesy.” Even when I said “Give me something to work with here!” Molly is the kind of girl that gives you salmon for your pit bull (me.)

Here’s her list.

Santa Maria Novella

My fur baby

Sage Sticks

Fig Trees

Angostura bitters

Red socks


White t shirts




Her official bio: The queen of all multi-hyphenates, there doesn’t seem to be anything Molly Schiot can’t do– illustrator, film maker, animator, photographer, painter, writer, baker, set maker and so on. With a degree in semiotics from Brown and a deep respect for the ubiquitous and the mundane, Molly creates worlds and tells stories which make us want to fall down the rabbit hole or permanently move to the Magic Kingdom. Sold-out exhibitions of her paintings and drawings, music videos for the likes of The Raveonettes and Mark Ronson, commercials for JC Penney, Nokia, Converse, Trident and Levis and her ‘Check You Out’ video series forPaper Magazine, let Molly put her Grade A intellect and off-beat humor to good use, constantly thrilling us with her latest creation (which is this.)
