the following pen+ink drawings were created by WILHELM M.BUSCH for the novel collection INGELHILD written by ALFRED LUECK in 1948. when you compare these early published illustrations with the ones BUSCH did later in the sixties you will see a big difference in style. his earlier work looks much more like woodcuts, what he actually studied at the art-academy in berlin. his later work is much lighter, even in the composition of the characters and the choices of backgrounds. but nevertheless his older work is beautiful as well.

in june 1987 I flew with HARALD SIEPERMANN to L.A. to do the storyboard for the TOONTOWN-sequence in WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT. we stayed as far as I remember five weeks, worked in a trailer right behind the AMBLIN ‘WHILE YOU WAIT’ – building on the universal lot, and created probably a thousand or more sketches. the final sequence was about 15 min long, what was with changes cut down to 45 sec in the final film. I remember one of the first assignments we got from DON HAHN, the assoc.producer, was to create a walk of eddie valiant through a part of toontown. we had to come up with all different light situations. harald did the sketch, that I colored from memory below, I painted then in 1987 the whole pan without the character and ILM used the whole set-up to create the light effects and the combination with the actor BOB HOSKINS as a test.
