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)

Hi. It’s Campbell’s cover for Danger Girl/G.I. Joe #5 by IDW. I simply couldn’t resist. Face I’ve seen on Campbells girls many times already, clearly painted-on t-shirt and especially that gun which looks like it was cut out of thick cardboard aside, it’s like he took a relatively normal posed girl and cut a huge hole in her body to give her swayed back. Also, it seems like part of her left breast is missing and though we see her pelvis from three-quarter view, her right butt-cheek is drawn like in profile. Plus, girl in background, who must wear one hell of a corset, because her waist is thinner than her head. Ouch.


The new MI-6 spray-on shirts had an unfortunate debilitating side effect.
