See the Pen Drop F by Chris Lowe (@alltimelowe) on CodePen.

Set in Monsieur La Doulaise, this ornate script takes inspiration for the plethora of hand lettering and calligraphy n the United States around the 1930s–50s. As part of a series of scripts created by Charles Bluemleim in 1944 published to promote inks from the Higgins Ink Company; Bluemleim took samples of signatures from friends and acquaintances to build his scripts and inject personality into the letter forms.

The CSS effect here is a continuation from the Drop D, where I am simply animating the background-position of a gradient.
