I was doodling as usual when I decided it would be fun to draw an accurate Victorian Era-style dress. So I did, and I was like "hey, this dress design is cool! Let's design some more!" So I proceeded to look up dresses from many different eras and sketch them all out. I finished with 1700s-style dresses, which were super heavy, super rococo, and looked like the most painful, awkward things to wear... but that was what a girl had to wear to be fashionable back then.
And so I pondered... isn't designing dresses and fashion just making out women to be pretty; to be nothing more than objects of admiration? I felt like I was designing dolls more than real human beings, sacrificing even comfort for looks.
So I thought about that concept in general... objectifying women for various reasons... whether for fashion, sex, or advertisement, it was the sheet fact of undermining human beings; making them something less than they are for less-than-holy ulterior motives. And I ain't down with that.
So this is my piece on that, I suppose. I chose to draw an anime girl because anime girls, almost by definition, are character-less dolls designed to be an object of affection. If you disagree with me, I would be more than happy to discuss. If you disagree with any of the symbolism you see, I would be more than happy to discuss.
Like anyone gives a fuck about this to begin with.
