Animation Discs & Oldskool Gamerz

A 2D animator’s best friend– their animation disc– is quite a versatile tool.
One can use it as a pillow…
One can use it to soften the sun.
One can use it as a tray on which to eat…
Or, more than anything, one can bring flat drawings to LIFE with the help of its pegbars and smooth, semi-opaque surface! (All the while, losing sleep, not getting outside to see the sun, and forgetting to eat).
You and I live a full 24 frames a second. We may even think every action in 24 frames a second! 2D is alive and will never die so long as our friend, the animation disc, is around.
(Which isn’t to say that 2D is impossible through computers… But the satisfaction of bringing paper to life is unrivaled!)

Consider yourself a king of the arcade?
Do you exchange your pennies for quarters at the bank?
Or would you consider throwing an all-Atari pizza party?
Perhaps the sight of these buttons induced oldschool gamer flashbacks.
In the event that any of the above statements apply to you, look no further: you’ve found the button set designated for you!

New Button Swag!

The Button-Bracelet converter allows you to wear any five 1″ buttons together as a bracelet!

That’s right, now you can get a Cartoon-YOU! featuring you and your sweetheart, or best friend, or whoever you want! Head on over to the Tahn-Emporium for your own charming, unique drawing! You send me pictures to a public online album of you and your companion (or, if you’re getting this as a gift for another couple, then link me to their album); tell me the expression/mood you want the piece to be and I’ll send you an 8″x8″ 300dpi fully-colored, fully-rendered drawing such as the one above of Tess and Dimitri. For a little extra, you can even have a tangible print mailed to you 🙂


The Tahn-Emporium now offers a completely unique, custom drawing of YOU! (Or any single person YOU WANT!) Bah, it won’t be any of that insulting stuff that you get at the county fair. You tell me what expression you want, and you send me a link to your online photo album(s) (so I can study your features and figure out a cartoon from there) and I’ll then send you a high-quality digital copy (300dpi, 8″x8″) and for a nominal fee, will send you a print-out of the cartoon YOU!
