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.

Hello! I’ve been lurking around this blog and I really love your blog! I just got on Tumblr recently, so I’m still learning the ropes around here.
Anyway, I found this pic and…. two things
1) the girl in the blue swimsuit is clearly doing a boobs and butt pose
2) It just baffles me that they decided to put a picture of two swimsuit models playing around as a cover picture of a horror comic.  



To be fair, Grimm’s Fairy Tales isn’t a horror comic.  The boobs and butts pose is interesting though given that it looks like she’s just being lightly splashed, so the it looks a bit incongruous to me that she’s reacting with such a twist.

  10. woggywoowoo said: the motion in this bothers me more than the boobs and butt pose. The girl doing the “splashing” is just sort of holding water in her hand and somehow it jumped out of her hand. It’s just really stiff and bad looking.
