About This Class

In this class we're going to be making a fun doodle-styled lettered gif that you can send to a friend or post on Instagram. The process is super quick, easy and fun! No need to be an advanced letterer, even simple handwriting can create an awesome gif. 

I can’t wait to see what you guys create.
