This campaign is off to a good start, I believe We are at , I say us because this campaign is led by the Webtoon. Factory platform, which ordered Satanism and Eco Responsibility from me and broadcast it on screen. I’m so glad WF decided to compile this whole saga into one book Geoffrey Can you tell us how the idea of bringing Satan. Beelzebub and their universe into the mix among these resolutely contemporary questions on ecology came about. Loïc I was a choirboy for a long time when I was a kid, Satan is an old friend. As a child, I was terrified of the very idea of the devil, all the stories about the underworld. Looking back, I even think that was my first very strong experience of immersion in a fiction. Later, at the Beaux Arts, in the fourth year. I worked a lot on the representation of the devil. On stories in pictures featuring demons in absurd chases.
Did you immediately find the tone that you were going
I confronted these drawings of demons with photographic images of meat or vegetables from supermarket advertising leaflets yes, I was trying stuff. All of that is a long way off, but Satan is a longslumbering story companion but background remove service never far away. The idea for the series came to me when. I noticed during a stay in Paris, three years ago, how electric scooters had very suddenly invaded. The public space and that they were presented as an ecological means of transport. While their production, development, use and recycling clearly posed more ecological problems than they solved. It very sincerely produced a drop of water effect that broke the camel’s back. It made me angry, in despair.
What is the character in which you project yourself the most
Satan must have woken up at that moment saying to me Hey, but the anger. The despair, that’s all me and I had to say. Okay, but you who think you’re Evil, look how you’re getting passed by electric scooters, man I’m fictionalizing a bit, huh. But precisely, producing fiction seemed to me the best way to be relevant. I am not a scientist, I am not a EU Phone Number specialist in environmental problems, I am just modestly aware of them. If I brought in Satan, it is on the one hand to distance myself from my own anger in the face of the problems and their stakes, and above all. To avoid posing myself as being the one who got it all and lectures others. While Satan, even if it’s really a joke that he does it, can afford to lecture us. But, um, let’s see what he has to say anyway.
