Comic Charm

the art and thoughts of Cassandra James

So something has emerged recently, called 'The Hawkeye Initiative.' This is a fantastic blog where artists submit re-draws from comic pages and pin-ups featuring highly sexualized women and replace them with Hawkeye.  This is a perfect way to show the disparity between the way the genders are presented in comics.I wanted to do one of my own during my break today.  This is David Finch’s original of Vampirella:

You can do this re-draw with pretty much any David Finch drawing featuring a woman. It’s upsetting and I think reflects on the industry as a whole. Finch’s artwork is very solid, he has a great sense of composition and texture; it’s just such a shame his depictions of women are so ridiculous.
