About This Class


In this class, you'll learn how to turn your hand lettering into animations that make your lettering really stand out online.  I’ll show you several different types of lettering animation, so you can choose the method that works best for your personal style.

You'll learn:

  • how to create a simple animation with moving decorative elements
  • the basics of the RoughAnimator app
  • a few different ways to make your hand drawn elements move across the page.
  • how to turn an image made in Procreate into an animation using RoughAnimator
  • how to create a hand drawn animation that shows the movement of your pencil or stylus
  • how to use multiple colors in an animation, so you can turn any quote into a multi-colored animation.


All you need to take this class is your iPad, Procreate, and a stylus.  The RoughAnimator app is optional, but it’s only a few dollars in the app store, so once you see how fun it is to use, you’ll probably want to buy it. If you’re growing your hand lettering business or online following, animating your lettering is a great way to get noticed online.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil in this class, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger. Let’s get started!
