[VIDEO] How to Draw Eddie Huang Tutorial

February 22nd, 2015 No comments

How to Draw Eddie Huang tutorial/tribute video. Eddie Huang is a chef, entrepreneur, author and creator of the TV series Fresh off the Boat. Eddie is a thought leader in the growing movement of Asians doing big things in modern western culture. I’ve been a huge fan of Eddie since I saw his food show on the VICE network. As an Asian immigrant myself I appreciate all the hard he’s done and for being a voice for the Asian community. So shout out my playa, looking forward to growing the movement with you.
