“A Designer’s Cartoon Life”

Tango Gao for TANGO

“Gao Youjun, aka Tango, is a popular cartoonist on Weibo, where over 160,000 followers enjoy the cartoons he posts every day. The hobby began as a bet in 2010 when one of Tango’s friends said, “”Why don’t you open a Weibo account and draw every day?”" He accepted the challenge and began to draw. Tango has loved drawing since he was a kid. His cartoons are simple and brief, and mostly feature personified daily objects or animals and their coincidental connection with each other. For example, one of his cartoons is about Halloween pumpkins waiting fearfully to be hollowed out and carved into horrific faces. His style is deeply influenced by the cartoons in The New Yorker. “
