Artus Scheiner

Discovered a great blog post on an illustrator from the turn of the century named Artus Scheiner, here.

And here's some background:

Scheiner, working as a financial clerk in Prague, began drawing as a hobby. He was completely self-taught. Soon magazines in Austria, Germany, and Hungary began publishing his drawings. From 1897 he began publishing in various Czech magazines, and 1902 saw the release of his first book of fairy tale illustrations.

And here's some images, a number of them not included in the other post:

Note: This is a folktale called Otesanek, by K.J. Erben. It was made into a great movie by Jan ҆vankmajer, Little Otik.
