    Meet Clément BALOUP, author of "J'aurais pu devenir millionnaire, j'ai choisi d'être vagabond". The life and journey of an ecological pioneer, adapted into a comic strip, published by Paulsen.

    The story:
    "He's the freest man I've ever met," said Theodore Roosevelt. After spending several days in the forest with the President of the United States, John Muir succeeded in convincing him of the importance of taking measures to protect the wilderness. This led to the creation of the first national parks, including the famous Yosemite. This is the thread running through Clément Baloup's script, which takes us along the great paths taken by this prophetic ecological pioneer. From an early age, this self-taught genius - inventor of ingenious machines as a teenager, philosopher and brilliant writer, but also naturalist, zoologist and glaciologist - chose to renounce the new industrial and industrious society to live immersed and autonomously in nature.

    The author:
    Since 2004, Clément Baloup has been publishing comics and notebooks that focus mainly on the retranscription of reality. Exploring destinies caught up in the turmoil of war, immigration and social strife, his research has taken him from the United States to New Caledonia, via Dubai and Hong Kong. He also devotes much of his time to teaching sequential narrative techniques at art schools and universities.
