His students call him a "gifted teacher," who can explain clearly the DRSB theories of Betty Edwards and also demonstrate in practice how they work.  There are hundreds of examples of striking "before" and "after" drawings created by students in Brian's classes, who are taught to draw in only five days.  He also lectures and teaches workshops in corporations, helping executives tap into their creativity and problem-solving abilities.
