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.

Last call for the caption contest which is ending in 2 days (July 7th)!
Details, how to submit and what the prize is are here:

If you are going to submit by tumblr reply, reblog or Disqus comment, please do it on that link. :)
Also, I’m going to be taking about a month hiatus from this blog.  In about a week, somebody close to me is having surgery and I’m going to be taking care of them during their recovery, so I want to not have to worry about blog stuff. Plus, I’m burning out a bit running this blog and dealing with other things going on in my life right now. :(
I also really apologize to people who have emailed me and haven’t gotten a response back yet, I’ve been too stressed to formulate responses or decide on what to do (if you asked me for something I need to look into details about first, or etc), so I know I have a bunch of stuff I have to respond to.  I’m going to try to respond to those during my break.
You can still submit submissions, but I’ll turn off the ask box until I’m back. :)  And I’ll still be updating my personal tumblr & taking asks there if anybody wants to talk to me. :)
I hope people understand.  I’ll be back and hopefully refreshed in about a month. :)  I’ll still be posting the winner of the contest though, but after that I’ll probably be sparse.  I’ll still probably post maybe once or twice every few days.
