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.

(All art featured on this blog belongs to their respective artists)

So my boyfriend picked up a manga called “Tenjho Tenge” (it’s apparently #10) and found this mess a few pages in. Apparently she is not, in fact, possessed by some demonic entity as it would appear at first glance

Being the lover of a professional tetris block is always so heartbreaking.

(Credits: Invincible Iron Man v3 #21. Artist is Mark Bagley. Character is Carol Danvers aka Warbird.) In this shot, Carol is doing an excellent impression of a centaur. A ridiculously top-heavy centaur and I’m not even talking about her breasts. It’s also close to a boobs and butt pose but not quite.

Captain Centaur to the rescue!

This cover has been on the blog before a long time ago, but I’m reposting it as a “best of Escher Girls” and also because this is a much nicer scan than the one originally posted.
This is still so absolutely amazing to me, especially if you block out her right leg.  I assume this is her vampiric sensuous snake form.

I again want to thank you for accepting that last submission.  I also again apologize for the stupid typos—I neglected to properly proofread the caption as I edited it.  Would you like another scan?

"Here take my heart!"
No!  I can’t!  You won’t have anything left in your body if I do!

Avengers World #12 - If you look at just her upper body and guess where her hips are, you get a very different location/orientation than if you follow just her legs.

"Arthur’s half sister. We’re not sure which half." - zhinxy upon seeing this
I also like how she’s wearing flats but her feet are such that it implies she’s wearing heels.

The best way of traveling. 

From this post.
It’s interesting because somebody also did this with the Black Widow picture I said this picture reminded me of. xD

And the competition continues!
Which Helicopter women did it best?  Which one will reign supreme!?

There is so much going on with this, I don’t even know where to start. From the second volume cover of 12 BEAST from Seven Seas.

Boobs, butt, cameltoe.  We have a winner of the rare Escher Girls triple crown!

I found this poor, broken Psylocke while browsing at Half-Price books. I think this artist (and most artists) has something against her.

Ah, Psylocke.  The Patron Saint of Escher Girls and white women trapped in Asian women’s bodies.
She showed up so much in the early history of this blog that her fans were yelling at me that her posts were cluttering up the Psylocke tag.

It will be uploaded to their website at some point, but there seems to be a backlog from the summer right now so I’m not sure when they will upload it.

You can keep checking their site here:

And I’ll also let people know when they upload it.

Helicopter legs.







Oh my god.  That beats Black Widow’s helicopter impression a million times over.
Now I’m tempted to have an Escher Girls competition between similar poses.  Like “who did it better?”
