This series of illustration tells the interesting story of acupuncture points in one's body.
The acupuncture points, as an amazing cultural heritage of the Traditional Chinese Medicine, have a long history. It is said that each acupuncture point affects a specific organ or part of the body. Thus, massaging acupuncture points helps people to keep healthy. When massage different points, people may have different feelings, such as numb, pain and sore.
I hope to tell the stories of the traditional culture in a more funny way through visual communication. One animal represents one acupuncture points. For example, giraffe represents the point relates to the neck. Combining these two elements adds fun to the traditional heritage and helps to create unforgettable memories.
