D-branes on K3 are analysed from three different points of view. For deformations of hypersurfaces in weighted projective space we use geometrical methods as well as matrix factorisation techniques. Furthermore, we study the D-branes on the T4/4 orbifold line in conformal field theory. The behaviour of the D-branes under deformations of the bulk theory is studied in detail, and good agreement between the different descriptions is found.
