CAVITIES!

2018.5-2019.11

Digital Illustration

Inspired by my experience at the dentist's office due to cavity issue. When the drill stormed my mouth with cold water, I could feel my tooth shivering and dancing in the flush, as if the bacteria was driving them as pool floats.

A year later, after having a painful deeply-impacted wisdom tooth extraction, I decided to expand this illustration into a board game project, developing more characters that could be potential residents in a mouth. The whole board game concept was inspired by the classic mafia game, where players need to find out who was the cavity tooth (liar). The whole project included a set of character design as well as a visual identity design.
