Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

"So, this is going to be a really hardcore fight okay, so make sure your panels focus on what’s important."
"Butts and cameltoe?"
"Exactly."

wincenworks showed me this book.  And it’s not just the ridiculous cover art that gets me or that the focus on a book about comic book women is “drawing hot babes” (which is what the focus of a lot of comic book art involving women seems to be about) but also this description:

"Whether you want to capture the likenesses of girls you know"
What.
Now you too can put that girl you’ve been crushing on into your sexy superhero fantasies!

Our Home is Saved!

See here for what I’m talking about.

Will Staples here, a.k.a. Filby, a.k.a. the guy who runs the Creature Chronicle.

It’s taken about half a year, but as of this past Friday, my family’s house is finally paid off. It’s over.

I felt I owed it to all of you to let you know that everything worked out okay. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to keep worrying about us, so I’m posting a scan of the receipt.

What happened is that it ended up taking a very long time for my mother’s tax returns to be processed - about three months. But with the roughly $6,500 we raised on GoFundMe, almost $4,000 of my mom’s tax returns, and $2,500 of my own money, we were able to scrape together enough to make the payment.

I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your help in saving our home. You’ve done a lot to boost my faith in humanity. In particular, I want to extend special thanks to my dear friend ami-angelwings, who was able to use her platform on eschergirls to give us the initial push of over $3,000 we needed to get rolling.

Again, our home is safe, and we will not be evicted. For the first time since this began six months ago, I feel at peace.

Thank you.

Some of you might remember that a while ago I had posted my friend’s fundraiser to save his home, so this is an update on what happened :)

I’m super happy for him and so glad that he and his family are able to stay in their house.  But also, I want to thank all of you for helping to make this possible.  He credits me for using Escher Girls to try to help, but it was all of the people who chipped in and donated that did it. :)  So yeah.  You guys are so awesome, and you helped out a really great and close friend of mine, and I wanted to say thank you so much. <3

Putting aside the amazing boobs and butt twist attack, this is like the least practical armor ever.  In every way.  For every body part.

It&#8217;s like they specifically gave her that outfit so that they could get in butt shot after butt shot after butt shot. o_o

weia-yo said: There are so many golden entries, how are you going to pick just one?

Generally, I pick a bunch of my favourites and then use a random number generator to determine the winner(s).

do you think the artist used a reference involving a ball-gag for this image?
all i know for sure is it kind of creeps me out

The Night of the animated, swearing, self-censoring manniquin heads.

I was at a Kinokuniya bookstore and found this little gem
It makes me wonder how thin and tight her clothes are

As an Exchange Student from the Land of Candy, her undergarments were specially tailored with a hairdryer out of a Grape Fruit Roll Up
