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.

Response to the “Breaking the Fourth Wall With Fanservice,” post which I found through Escher Girls Apparently Soprie was hoping to see an artist interpretation of what this character would look like from the other side, and I always wonder that very thing when I see art like that!
I’m not sure what her bag looks like, and didn’t look it up.  It may only have one strap, but I drew it as though it has two but she is only wearing one.  I really have no idea what was going on with her right arm and admit to not trying very hard on that particular, as I don’t think it’s what’s most important here.

This is the first of three images submitted to me that show the girl’s body from the OTHER side, and what the men would be seeing.
I love the backpack by the way.
