Taking away the fear of lettering
Great intro into lettering if you haven't done it before (much). Everything is very simple and straightforward, making you think "I knew that". And now, after watching what you already knew, you can happily go and play with your letters. Review by Regina (Posted on 8/1/2016)
For the person who has zero experience
This product is for the person who has never picked up a marker or pen. If you have never once doodled or tried to write you name in different ways, this may be useful to you. I was expecting more. Review by Jessica (Posted on 3/25/2016)

Me encanto!!!
Realmente me encanto estas lecciones de Lettergin!!! Aunque casi no hablo ingles las pude entender Review by Carmen Orozco (Posted on 11/11/2015)
I learnt about the 7 concepts and how to make them work. This is a great starting point for me. With this info I can be extremely creative.This is what I was looking for - a jumping off point. It is also good that Joanne has finally incorporated videos in her materials. Review by Sharon (Posted on 10/28/2015)
Very VERY basic
The video is done fairly well, clear and easy to watch, but the content is VERY basic, covering simple concepts like line, shape, form and color. If you are brand new to doodling, you might find some useful info in the video, but if you have any experience in lettering/doodling, I'm not sure you will learn anything. I didn't. But for $3 it was worth it. Review by Laura (Posted on 10/22/2015)
Excellent tutorial
A perfect companion to Joanne's "The Art of Whimsical Lettering". A great inspirational kick-start to put the author's techniques into practice, get further ideas and launch your own creative journey! Review by Gayle (Posted on 10/20/2015)
