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 don’t know if you’ve seen the new Miku Racing figure, but…it’s weird…

I’ve certainly seen worse, and from certain angles she looks fine, but the back…I don’t know. I’m usually okay with drawings, but seeing it happen in 3D is a bit unnerving…
