tapocketa  pronounced 'ta-pocket-a' is a fledgling design and animation studio.  We are Trevor Young and Eleanor Long and we live with Harvey Dog, our large stripy dog,  in a tall house in the town of Hertford in the UK. 

Eleanor, Trevor and Harvey and woodland creatures

We love drawing and making stuff.  That's the basis of all we do ... then its about making 'the stuff ' move, transform and become a fantastic discovery in itself.  We want to create, make and share stories and snippets that engage and enthral others.

Our work always starts with a pencil and paper. Drawing, paper cut outs and making actual real models leads into the computer work. This entails working with numerous programmes for an inordinate amount of time but it really is actually very exciting when we see our drawings and models come to life.

We work to transform our ideas into extensive and intriguing digital worlds to illustrate our stories and guides for children and big kids alike.  We aim to produce high quality digital books along with all manner of related media.

Our first book, Galdo's Gift,  an enhanced ebook with animated illustrations is currently available on the Apple iBooks Store.
