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.

Women in Games
Hello! I’m part of a tiny indie studio. We recently posted about the representation of women in games (and how that influenced the design of our character), and we thought that discussion fitted with the themes of the blog. =]
The article can be read here: http://stormfree.wordpress.com/2013/03/10/sexism-tomoe-and-womens-day/

Very cool.  And it’s great you thought about these things during your design process. :)
