I took Digital Imagery with Jacob and it was really fun. We worked with Photoshop, Illustrator, and learned all different types of art techniques. At first, I thought he was a little rough around the edges, but the more I went to class the more I saw he really does want to help his students become …more the best they can be. I would take again. less

I took this class going in blind and I enjoyed it so much! You use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator religiously. Such a fun class, the assignments are really exciting and you get to share them with the entire class!

I went into this class scared because I have never used photoshop or illustrator before but after the first few assignments I was considering changing my major to something like graphic design just to do stuff like this more often. I like how I had freedom to make art and do work I would frame on …more the wall. I wish I could take this class again! less

Didn't understand the concept of art (claimed that everyone can agree on what looks good or not). Also kept making "edgy" jokes about race, suicide, etc to try and liven up the class during slow points.

Absolutely incredible professor. Inspires students to be creative and to be original. He truly wants the best for everyone and wants everyone to contribute to their culture. Also sarcastic and dry and extremely funny.

An absolute joke. The only learning that you will receive from this course is from watching tutorial videos on your own time. He does not even bother teaching basic concepts of Photoshop or Illustrator. If you know your way around these programs then this class will be fun for you, but don't expect …more to actually be taught anything from the TEACHER. less

Dobson is a controversial professor, because he doesn't pull his punches in critique. He's the kind of person who will tell you how it is and what to do to fix it. If you can take the harsh criticism, you will grow significantly in his class. He believes that improving yourself as a designer is …more more important than getting straight As. less

Terrible teacher. He doesn't even teach. If you dont know the material then you you're going to have a terrible time in the class.

Class was not crazy difficult for me because I had past experience in Illustrator/Photoshop but Dobson expects the best. You NEED to work hard if you want a good grade but you'll be better for it. He doesn't teach how to use tech in class really so if your inexperienced you have to look up …more tutorials. Gives awesome advice and wants you to succeed. less

He is very rude and inconsiderate. During class one time he pulled up another student's art work and said it was so bad that his grandparents should be rolling in their graves. He says he gives you creative power but then goes on to tell you why your art is wrong. Dobson never fails to remind us …more that we are trash and he is the ultimate. -70/10 �� less
