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.

These are MI-6’s new tactical espionage Barbie dolls.  Do return them in one piece, 007.

Hello, this is my first time I submit something, I hope I’m doing right. Well, since I saw this I knew I had to do something silly with it, it was begging me to do. I didn’t bother fixing nothing except their hands when they looked unbelievable big in perspective.

This is awesome. :D  And looks way more fun.

I have no clue what’s going on.  A game of Twister gone wrong?  Maybe they’re playing “Guess which animal I’m trying to imitate?”

I’m not sure how this: http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/post/49517807609/i-have-no-clue-whats-going-on-a-game-of-twister turned into this. (I started it as a red line drawing, seriously!) I just wanted these poor ladies to be happy. So I gave them a secret headquarters. Everyone wants a secret headquarters.

That’s nothing like the original, but it’s also really cute and made me smile. :)  And I needed a smile right now, so thanks. :3

So this is what it feels like to be menaced by a gang of back-up dancers.
