my milk toof.

One of my resolutions for 2011 is to try my hand at photostories. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to use yet, most probably my LittleFee dolls as they are small and easy to pose, but I'm slightly irked that I don't have any in-scale props for them.

It got me thinking about one of my favourite photostory blogs, My Milk Toof. It's the work of Inhae Lee, a Korean artist living in California. Whilst taking an employment break having just left a job in the video game industry she happened upon the term 'milk tooth' and the idea blossomed. She created two little teeth, ickle and Lardee, who are inquisitive, just a little bit naughty but completely loveable.

Inhae has created around five different models for both characters in order to be able to show them with different facial expressions. She's also created tiny props for them to use, although the teeth are shown to be very small in relation to their environment. It's this attention to detail combined with the gorgeous quality of her photos that make this blog a true gem. I heartily suggest that you keep an eye on this one over the coming year. I can't chose a favourite story - go read them all!

All images used belong to Inhae Lee.
