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)

Rob Liefeld knows how to draw women perfectly. Especially ones that defy the laws of physics with their waists.

This neither titillates nor intimidates me.  Maybe they’re trying to defeat their foes through a mixture of disgust and pity?
