  1. David Jablow’s Doodles Subvert Sexy Tropes, Create Awesome Characters

    The mad libs of objectification: solved!

    Women of mid-twentieth century "doodle pads" were placed in provocative and often-fetishized poses so they could be further sexualized via sketching, but artist David Jablow sees the figures as a template for so much more.

To those of you who did, I want to say I already follow all of these people so relax we got this thank you.
