This will be a chroma key and masking project. You'll chroma key the hand & writing instrument over the graphics, and you'll animate masks on the graphics. You will need to a lot of planning.
You will need to determine the EXACT moves you want the hand to make. You will need to transfer these moves to a piece of glass over a green (or blue) background. Light this in two different planes, one for the glass & hand, one for the background. The markings on the glass should be barely visible. Then the hand makes the moves using a non-functioning writing instrument. Make the moves slowly. You can always speed them up.
Then use animated masks to reveal the text. If you want to have the hand draw on the symbols, you have another degree of complexity in your planning.
It is also good to run tests on the lighting, keying and masking before you do this for real.
