Welcome to the Home Page of Antics Workshop!
Antics Workshop is the developer and supplier of the Antics 2-D computer animation software... the uniquely versatile medium for creating animation and graphics of all kinds quickly and easily.

Antics 2-D Animation Software
The Original -- Developed Continuously Since 1972
Right from its early days, the aim of Antics was to provide an easy-to-use tool that would allow a single individual to produce animation that otherwise might require a whole team of people.

Antics is inspired by a belief in animation as the most powerful medium... not only for cartoon entertainment, but also for communicating ideas and 'explaining things' in almost any field... science, medicine, business, education, journalism, and more...

From the beginning there was the vision that this tool would one day be easily available to all, including the individual home user -- not just the professional studios. Antics Classic for Windows now makes this a reality.
