Hey everyone! This is Mei Yu, the creator and artist of Fun2draw and MeiYuArt. I enjoy creating my Tutorial Thursday art tutorials (easy to advanced), "Animate My Life" cartoon animations, and unique art challenge videos for my subscribers and fans. My Fun2draw channel has over 600 drawing tutorials, with new Fun Friday art challenges and animations every week.

Many viewers have asked me why I started Fun2draw. I was self-taught when I was young. I didn't have a special art teacher or art classes - until high school and college. I know it can be frustrating to teach yourself to draw something. It can also be tough to find someone who's there to show you what you like to draw, in an easy, fun way, step by step.

Many people love to draw but they don't know how to start. Lots of people get discouraged due to lack of inspiration or support. Quite a number of parents have asked me to teach their kids private art classes. I thought instead of helping a few, I could help many worldwide. That's why I started my Fun2draw channel on YouTube, and my Fun2draw apps and eBooks.

My Fun2draw videos have now been viewed more than 200 million times on YouTube. Now I have over 1 million subscribers on my Fun2draw YouTube channel. I'm very happy my Fun2draw videos can help inform, entertain, and inspire many on a daily basis!

Many viewers have told me that my Fun2draw videos have encouraged them to start drawing. They have become better drawers. They draw along with my Fun2draw videos, then show their drawings to their classmates at school. They make more friends with their art. They feel more confident. Some parents and grandparents have emailed me to tell me how much their children love to draw along with my Fun2draw videos. They watch with their kids regularly. I think this is awesome! I love to see more adults encourage and support their kids with their art and creativity.

I'm super happy to know that many of my Fun2draw viewers share their Fun2draw fan art on my Facebook page, in their own YouTube fan art videos, and on other social sites. I feel very lucky to be able to inspire them like this, because they're putting what they learned from Fun2draw to good use.

I love to hear that many of my fans have told me that my Tutorial Thursday how to draw videos and my Fun Friday art illustrations, animations, art videos, and art challenges inspire and encourage them to continue practicing and creating art!
