    William Martin Busch was born in Breslau, Germany. His father was a painter and professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw. During Mr. Busch’s professional life he jumped from decorative painter to press illustrator, freelancing as artist, then sharing his wisdom as a teacher. Not least, amidst it all, illustrating over 300 books. Duly earning recognition and the distinguished Edwin Scharff Prize.

    Mr. Busch’s style ranges from meticulous and realistic renders, to loose and speedy sketches. Of which his entire gamut is equally enchanting. Personally, I am besotted by Mr. Busch’s more relaxed linework. He could capture the essence and gesture of a moment at a level that is rarely achieved.

    There are a couple of great websites that feature a ton of Wilhelm M. Busch’s work, head to Hans Bacher’s blog and Deja View.

    Sheree is currently studying Illustration and Comic Art at the Achool of Art and Design Kassel, Germany. Her blog has a huge amount of work, especially comics. I love her alternative ‘indie’ style, which is quite abstract and loose. I really hope to see her work in my favourite comic shop, Gosh in London, one day soon. She seems the sort to be unconstrained by our ‘set rules’ of how to create comics, and I believe it’s people like her who will break the mould and do incredibly exciting things with the medium.

    Isabel Seliger was born in Germany, 1984. She studied Illustration and Comics at the School of Art & Design Kassel and she is now taking commissions. Her work can be quite intricate and a little abstract at times, and she tackles some interesting topics in her work (dwarf portraits intrigued me…) She has been interviewed over at Light Grey Art Lab, if you’d like to read a little more about her.

    Wischnik was born in Wolgast, and now lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His website portfolio is a must-see. It’s full of all sorts of styles and mediums, including vector, animation, collage, traditional inked illustration, digital illustration and even a great little comic strip simply titled ‘Oh’. You can definitely see that this is someone who enjoys their work. And I enjoyed it too.
