Guy Tang is a self-described "HairActivist" from LA. He's known for his wild, multi-color dye jobs, and has a large following across several social media platforms.

In celebration of his one-millionth Instagram follower, hair product company Kenra Professional hired us to create an eight-page comic featuring Tang. The stylist is a comic fan and has drawn inspiration for some of his work from various superhero costumes.
 
For this project we wrote the script and provided all art and design. The printed book was distributed at an Kenra event held in honor of Tang. The party featured a life-size standee of the figure from the cover for attendees to pose with.
One challenge was designing a super-hero version of Tang. The real Tang is muscular and also works as a model.
Design work included this masthead inspired by 80's cartoons like She-Ra.
Within eight pagesTang recieved superpowers, met his nemesis, vanquished him, and threw a dance party.
The eight-page comic included seven character designs, most of which were based on real people.
The vivid colors used in Tang's hair styles inpired our use of color throughout the comic. We also wrote a lot of hair-puns.
