What Brian’s Students are Saying

Brian has been clear in his lectures, critiques, and email messages. I never felt like I did not understand what Brian was saying or meant, so moving forward and making fixes was never a hassle. He provides good reference and explanation and is approachable with questions and concerns, and uses demonstrations and examples when commenting on work to help show it can be improved or what does not work in it.

Exceptionally strong feedback for the quadruped assignment. Being from tippet, it’s clearly a strength of his.Handout/dropbox notes area really great. I think there should be more of these take-home notes with practical breakdowns and tight/distilled information.
