Disney heroes face ecological disaster, by Baptiste Drausin.

French illustrator Baptiste Drausin, a self-taught DC Comics enthusiast known by the pseudonym The Baptman, came up with a brilliant idea to combine his passion for pop culture with an ecological conscience.

During a trip to Indonesia in 2018, he was devastated by the waste that was piling up on the beaches and near the forests.


Images that really shocked him. "I then asked myself how, from that, I could try to raise awareness," says Baptiste Drausin.


His first drawings appeared on the occasion of the Inktober.

Inktober is a challenge launched on social networks, which consists of posting a drawing each day of October with different constraints.

He uses characters from pop culture such as Disney or DC Comics heroes by hijacking their universe. He places them in ecological disaster scenarios, in complete contrast to Disney's soft universe.

"My word has become more meaningful. Primary and secondary school teachers write to me to ask if they can use my drawings and demonstrators for the climate march..."


"The hardest thing is to take a step back, but above all to find the right association between the idea related to ecology and the character. Sometimes

I get stuck on current events."


...says the Parisian illustrator.


Through his illustrations, Baptiste Draussin raises awareness and offers a new perspective.

He is not the first to denounce ecological scourges in this way, the New York artist

Jeff Hong had already done so.
