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.

This is the perfect example of all the problems that Mike Deodato has with drawing women: her thighs are really long, her calves are really short, one of her shoulders is in the wrong place, her back is broken, her waist is swiveling, and her thighs bend under her hips.
