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.

I’m not sure where the original post is, sorry! But I decided to do a redraw because this girl was just… so… broken. It’s nowhere near perfect, but I think everyone can agree that it looks a lot less terrifying.
