"My Milk Toof" follows the adventures of two baby teeth, ickle and Lardee.
ickle (yes, spelled with a small "i") and Lardee are made out of polymer clay and acrylics. Lee has five (or so) models of each tooth with varying expressions. She makes the other props herself and takes a picture for her stories with a DSLR. Lee also conceptualizes and writes the stories featured in her blog.
In the past few years, the success of ickle and Lardee has risen fast. Aften doing some self-publishing for notebooks and card prints, Lee was offered a book deal by Chronicle Books and will be released in March of 2011.
"My Milk Toof" is quirky, fun and sweet. It's a delightful trip that tickles the imagination with no age boundaries.
