My name is Baptiste Drausin, a.k.a. The Baptman, and I'm a self-taught artist.  I grew up with pop culture, and I love to use it. I'm particularly a fan of DC comics.

When I began to draw in 2017, I did a mashup with two characters from pop culture. Now I use them to talk about ecology issues. Check my illustrations out, and take a look at my Instagram for more of my content.

I've drawn ever since I was young, but I never took classes; I'm self-taught.

I have also been a massive fan of comics, movies, and TV shows. That's why I always wanted to do drawings that used pop culture.

I started to draw on Instagram in 2017. I started with doing mashups (a mix of 2 characters from pop culture). But it was in October 2018 that I started drawing on ecology.

Quick, take a selfie with her for your Instagram! And another one where you brush off a tiny bit of oil, tagging it with "Of course helping to mitigate the disaster #hero #selfless".

I was returning from a year of traveling in Australia and Asia, and I saw pollution everywhere, even in places where there were no people. When I was looking for an idea for the 2018 Inktober, I spoke with a friend. He advised me to talk about the pollution and what I had seen. So I decided to speak about ecology by using pop culture to touch on what we love the most and shock people who would see the drawings.

Encouraging on the micro perspective, sad on the macro perspective.

 I have grown up with Disney, Star Wars, and Comics, so it was essential to use these characters for me. As for superheroes, I have two favorites: Batman (hence the Instagram name Baptman) and Green Lantern. Batman because it's a Human who wants to change his city to Make a better place. Green Lantern because he is stubborn and wants to save people whatever happens.

It really is outrageous that this is still allowed. EU countries mostly have banned foie gras yet France still allows it due to the "protected cultural and gastronomical heritage of France". Apparently, animal cruelty is cultural heritage.

I think a lot about global warming and ecology, and I think we need to change now. A few days ago, the IPCC report gave back the keys to act and save humanity. We don't just destroy the planet as if it will have no consequences; we will die in the end, too. Planet earth will continue to live after us. We will only be one more extinction. But if we want to get past that, we must all change our behavior, our way of life.

As for me personally, things are going well, even if there is global warming, covid, and other nasty stuff going on worldwide.

I try to publish a Book about ecology, and I work with a friend on a New Instagram page about drawing and pop culture. So check out and follow my Instagram to get updates on that.
