“I took this class immediately after completing Iva’s “Instagram Reels: Boost Your Engagement with Art Reveal Videos” (which I loved!) and it was a winner as well! Fun, easy to follow, inspiring and full of practical tips. I drew over a dozen personalized GIFs within a day of taking it and it was so much fun! I continue doodling new ones whenever I get a chance or when I want to put a personal touch to my IG stories – it just takes minutes to create and the satisfaction is immediate. I actually find it very relaxing and enjoyable to doodle my GIF sketches, a great warm up for a drawing session!”

As a class project, I encourage you to create a simple animated illustration, save it as a gif, and upload it to Giphy. This way, you can share your creations with others or use them in your own Instagram stories. To help you get started, I’ve also provided a few illustrations that you can download and practice on.

I can’t wait to see your amazing creations in the project section! I’m truly excited to have you join me in this class as we embark on a journey to create captivating animated illustrations.
