I stumbled upon the “My Milk Toof” blog by Inhae Lee a while back. As the name suggested, it is about a story of two little tooth characters, Ickle and Lardee, who keep this blog alive. The characters are made out of polymer coat and painted with acrylic, and there are about five models of each in different expressions. Making each character by hand not only takes a lot of time, but it also sets boundaries and limitations to what the shapes of the characters can look like.

With the two characters in mind, I want to create a tool that can generate characters in various forms, but at the same time still maintain the same fundamental shapes (i.e. tooth). I am hoping to make use of toxiclibs library to create 3d models. I want to also do some digital fabrication to actually see the characters in a tangible form.
