Baptiste Drausin, sometimes known as The Baptman, is a self-taught artist. I grew up with pop culture and enjoy incorporating it into my work. DC comics are a special favourite of mine.
When I first started drawing in 2017, I created a mashup of two pop culture figures. I now utilise them to discuss environmental issues. Check out my illustrations, and follow me on Instagram for more of my work.

Extinct Species And Mowgli
I’ve been drawing since I was a child, but I’ve never taken any classes; I’m self-taught.
I’ve also always been a big admirer of comic books, movies, and TV series. That’s why I’ve always wanted to do pop culture illustrations.
In 2017, I began drawing on Instagram. I began by doing mashups (a mix of 2 characters from pop culture). But it wasn’t until October 2018 that I began to draw on the subject of ecology.
Politics And Wall-E
Oil Spill And Ariel
I had just returned from a year of travelling around Australia and Asia, and I had noticed pollution everywhere, even in areas where there were no people. I spoke with a friend as I was brainstorming ideas for Inktober 2018. He suggested that I speak about the pollution and what I had witnessed.So I planned to use pop culture to talk about ecology while also shocking individuals who would see the drawings.
Global Warming And The Titanic
Force-feeding, Donald Duck, And Foie Gras
Because I grew up with Disney, Star Wars, and comic books, it was necessary for me to use these characters. I have two favourite superheroes: Batman (thus the Instagram handle Baptman) and Green Lantern. Batman is a superhero because he is a human who wants to improve his community. Green Lantern is a superhero because he is adamant about saving people no matter what.
