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.

This is amazing, and I applaud the author for making this post.  This is a male fantasy author who put himself in various female poses from fantasy novel cover art, including his own book, to show how ridiculous the poses are (and also he realized how much pain he was in in some of them).
What’s interesting about the picture I chose is that the girl is in a boobs and butt pose, and he doesn’t even come close in his attempt because of the pain he said it caused him.
