Bounce letters demystified

This was a lovely short little workshop! I really enjoyed how you demystified the bounce lettering. Figuring out when to bounce and how far to go has always been tricky for me, but this really simplified it and made it clear by first showing the rules of lettering, and then how to break them. Super fun class, really enjoyed it.

Everything in the video was beneficial. The repeated encouragement to allow ourselves to make mistakes. Perspective is everything. If, instead of immediately feeling depressed because the attempt didn't turn out perfect - we should choose rather to ask ourselves, "What did I learn?" When we do, a mental paradigm will immediately shift from failure to just one more step toward success!

This was so helpful! I loved the way Shelby broke down the basics in a succinct way and tips to use while practicing. Lastly, I appreciated Shelby mentioning that everyone is going to have a unique bounce lettering style. As someone who is new to brush lettering in general, I've been copying a lot of what I see. I need that consistent reminder to avoid potential frustration, especially as a beginner!

Shelby is an excellent instructor. She breaks it down to basics. I enjoy her manner of speaking. I am a complete beginner & look forward to using the worksheets to practice. The platform is great, too.

Hi Shelby: I knew little to nothing about bounce lettering before I took your course. Now I have a much better understanding of bouncing letters. You are a great presenter. You are clear and thorough. I also liked the platform itself. It was easy to navigate. And finally, the handouts were very helpful when I was practicing. Thank you. Carol
