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.

(All art featured on this blog belongs to their respective artists)

My little sister drug me into the Children’s place when I was out shopping. I was so confused at first. Either she’s an owl or they drew her head on backwards.






My friend’s reaction: “Owl Girl just wrecked her secret identity.”
(This post is just meant for fun, because it was submitted to me and I find the optical illusiony aspect amusing and wanted to share it for some weekend fun. :) Obviously this isn’t sexualized or anything.)

Was looking through Valentine’s themed t-shirts on WeLoveFine and saw this one.  Sadly, they don’t prominently list the artist (I don’t know if the art has been stolen?) so I can’t confirm who drew it right now.

Rogue herself is looking pretty twisty.

Leia Boobs & Butt Pose
Shopping for a cool Princess Leia tee for myself, I came across this beauty. It really sheds new light on Leia’s time as Jabba’s prisoner, and the torture she endured having her ribcage removed and back broken.

I think she’s only showing one butt cheek, but they’ve definitely done something to her torso.

Makes me sad, because I normally like tokidoki’s style/design. And I like Marvel. 

And of course it’s Psylocke. xD

A T-shirt design from Splitreason. I like the style of the art, but the subject…yeah.

The cartoon style is cute. :)  But apparently, even for geek girls playing video games, we need boobs and butt.

Found this at a t-shirt booth in Sabakon today… I don’t know what this is from, or who the character is, but ouch.

Maybe she’s giving hints on how to fold laundry, by using herself as an example.
