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, such as how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

I admire this girl's ability to get blasted out of a spaceship in perfect boobs and butt silhouette pose. I suppose the bent pose is fairly realistic, given the circumstances.

Esme (pink haired cat girl) raising out of a streaming glad only in a purple bikini, pushing her breasts together with her arms with Cherry (full anthropomorphic catgirl) in the background.  Cherry says "You know, most cats don't like water..." and Esme responds "Speak for yourself.  I'm not a cat, I'm an Escher Girl."

Thank you all so much

Here's the promised art drawn by Nicky Trashfox for #ThankYouPatrons day!  But I want to give you all a big thank you for all your support and fandom.  Escher Girls literally wouldn't exist without you.
