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.

Here is the Christmas present I promised everybody yesterday!
This is the official Escher Girls’ Centaur Badge for people who have read through the entire archive!  Drawn by the awesome and talented Girl In Four Colors (Ceridwen Alison Troy, who is also a good friend.)
For those who don’t know why we chose a centaur for the badge, the on-going joke of having a “centaur badge” as a reward for finishing the archive started in this post:
http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/post/30377062206/not-even-centaurs-are-safe
And since then I keep getting messages from people asking for the badge, so I figured we should actually make one. :)
So, there you go!  Wear it proudly!  And Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays. :)
