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.

So I saw this (aka this) and I almost broke my brain trying to figure out what was going on. So I did this. And, well… let’s just say my brain is officially broke. Why couldn’t they just a pose like this one?:

Although much better of course, this was just a very quick doodle. And, of course, I know others could draw much better, more fitting poses than I just did. But yeah - just a example that you don’t have to break the girls like that…
