About the Author

Joko Budiono lives and teaches art in San Francisco. Born in Indonesia, he grew up fascinated by cartoons and developed a keen appreciation for visual art. After studying at the Academy of Art University, Joko collaborated with Leandro Ng and Thomas Denmark to write and illustrate an artist's manual in applying and mastering the principles of perspective, Creative Layout: Perspective for Artists (out of print). Joko's follow-up book, The Thousandth Thumbnail, continues his exploration of concept development and composition. These days, Joko enjoys teaching and watching his students' abilities grow, while also preparing illustrations for his next book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who works in illustration, comics, film, design, just about anyone with an interest in layout and composition. It's also very effective at communicating Joko's thumb-nailing philosophy non-verbally, so I suggest it to anyone of any language.

I came across this book by accident on google while looking up something else and immediately became obsessed with owning it, after a bit of research I was pleased I could purchase it what seems to be directly from the artist/publisher.

I've shown this book to most of my designer friends and keep it handy for times I hit a brick wall while thumbnailing. I feel my own work has gotten a lot more dynamic since playing with this method of tiny light/dark studies in the initial composition stage. Thanks Joko!

Great thumbnails, they are simple, easy to understand, and very inspiring and fun to look at. Joko's style and his perspective are mind blowing, you will not be disappointing as he covers the very early stages, to the final product. Highly recommend it, you will get what you pay for, and alot more that you did not see coming, but will be happy you did.

If you want detailed colorful polished work look elsewhere. But this is not what I wanted. I wanted to see behind-the-scenes of a good designer's thought process. This is exactly what it is. I would have liked to see a little bit more variations on one idea (for a finished piece) and the color illustrations weren't some of his strongest work. (And he has some VERY strong work). All in all very worth it. Thank you Joko. Best to you with Teddy-1.

Joko Budiono is a master of composition, and he breaks down the process into easy to understand steps with hundreds of examples.

This book is filled to overflowing with great ideas and great drawings. Budiono's understanding of perspective, form, and value pattern are evident in each thumbnail. He shows everything from atmospheric perspective to 3-point and 5-point (!) perspective in this book!

This is a book of thumbnails. The drawings are rough, as they should be, to teach the beginning artist, and to remind the seasoned pro, how to create good compositions and to use all the basic art skills to great effect.

This book gets the highest recommendation and should be on your shelf next to the other essential how to art books.

This book is amazing. It shows all the thumbnails and line drawings that he went through before finishing the piece in color. GREAT because it's not wordy, and just shows you everything visually instead of trying to describe how he approached. love it, it's a must buy for all joko fans out there!!
