How Do You Draw Asian Women?

Here’s a list of the reasons why this video is so wrong:

  1. There is no one way to draw an Asian woman.
  2. Upturned eyes? Small nose? Beautiful, big and full lips? Really?
  3. According to eHow, people were genuinely asking how to draw Asian women.
  4. She’s not even wearing a kimono.
  5. I’m kidding about that last one.
  6. This guy is a horrible teacher. He doesn’t even describe what he’s doing or why. There’s a small glimmer of hope in me that perhaps he doesn’t explain what he’s drawing because he’s realizing how racist it can sound. Instead of “slanty eyes”, he just calls them “beautiful”.
  7. This guy is even worse at drawing. If that’s what he thinks Asian women look like, then he’s never met one of us before.
  8. Unless that was his point: there really is no way to teach someone how to draw Asian women.
  9. Then why did he agree to do this video?
  10. Now I’m confused.

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
