They're all really fantastic! There are several I'd love to buy. How big were you thinking about making the prints?
These seem like they'd work really well as larger wall-sized prints, and also as postcards.
Yay! Especially loved the Mulder/Scully one.
Yes, but she never became a jedi knight.
Don't EVEN with me.
ACK-tually, he was talking about somebody else that never appeared in the movies, back before George Lucas decided he didn't want to make any more Star Wars movies and end the series with Jedi.
It was really great getting to watch your process! And thank Linney for the excellent ustream-assisting too.
The portrait of The Nanny turned out great by the way - the colours really pop.
I'd love to catch you on ustream again!
Also it worked out well having your friend Nelly there to help read out questions so that you could work - it kept the atmosphere nice and light.

That is one of the best kinds of bombs.
Thanks for the informational things, labeled flickrs and videos and all. I am so glad you recorded and archived those(bummed I won't be able to watch them for a while).
The way you rendered all 24 portraits in your distinctive style is incredible! Your Ustream was so entertaining to watch - I didn't end up doing my homework, but don't regret it in the slightest
And remarkably disturbing. I'll re-visit these.
That was such a great and helpful video. Thanks Lucy!!
wooo yay portraits! Oh man the Wilde one is beautimous. Heart.
Nertz, the part of the videocast that's missing is the part where I was taking the bus home. I will never learn your devilish wash process! You've escaped this time, Knisley!
Wait, it's there!
I will now cry on your lap.
omg! The Nanny! i loved that show sooooo much!
They have it in Mexico too, oh how I wish the Spanish networks would bring it here.
But yeah, and btw. Your portraits are beautiful! I love your SHaun of the Dead one too! these are all brilliant. wow. And your supplies. wow.
I want you to knwo your hard work is admired here in California! :D

Please let us know when you plan to sell the prints.
I'd kill for a print of the Mario Twins and The Kids in the Hall, among others. These ALL look fucking gorgeous, though.
Aaaaaaahaha! I love The Nanny. I Tivo it. Thank you so much.
God, the prints are amazing!
I particularly love Batman and Robin, especially Robin's martini! They're all wonderful!
*squees helplessly at the J&W and X-Files portraits*

Wilde, Jeeves & Wooster, House, Hannibal,...
I think I love you. :)
These are so great! You put me to shame with the rate you cranked those out! If you're still taking suggestions might I suggest the Monty Python crew, or maybe Jimmy Corrigan or the Mighty Boosh. Gahhh! There are just so many I want to see you dooooooo!
It's great to se the tools you use and read about the paper you use. So I can see lots of familiar pens: PITT brush pens and the loveley Pentel brush pen too. Plus I've got a white-out pen just like that, It's like you've raided my desk!
But one other thing I'm a bit obsessive about is paper sizes. How big do you draw?
LOVE the portraits, Lucy! They remind me of the Ryder Tarot card series, which I can stare at for hours even to this day.
I hope you put these together in a book. I'd love to get one.
I was eyeing up some of those Dr. Ph Martin's paints today...
Ustream was so much fun last night. I was 'lazyhazycrazy' there. I definitely look forward to your next recordings!
I would totally buy prints. I love them all, but I would probably buy the Nanny one just because I love that I saw its whole process. :)
I have to add...
The green hand. :p
It was so nice to watch you work yesterday! In a slightly voyeuristic manner, anyway. Linney is adorable, and Nelly's attempts to pronounce our weird usernames were entertaining.
I hope you try that out more often!

caught the end of the stream last night. great stuff. love your work!
AHAHAHAHA THE LOOK ON ORSINO'S FACE!!!!
EPIC LULZ, AS THEY SAY
Holy crap, the Mario Bros is AMAZING. You put my artistic side to shame, lol.
I LOVE THE NANNY! I still watch the reruns and it remains funny as hell. Especially Niles (couldn't believe his actor is really American. Very convincing Brit accent!)

...but I can only see episodes 1, 2, and 5. What happened to 3 and 4? And what was that brownish stuff you were painting on at the end of episode 2?
Thanks, Miss. LURVE your work.
Those are incredible! Good work!!
Oh my goodness we were tramatised by the same summer camp! Northway I think? God, I hid in the tent pretty much all two weeks. The camp known for its dangerous encounters with wild animals. shudder. That brings back some HORRIBLE memories.
hahaha, Really?? Oh man, gotta love Northway-- A great place, just not for me. I couldn't deal with it being dark all the time! You know, it's dark in the tend, dark outside because it's usually raining, all the time- DARK. Very hard for drawing. Also, I always seemed to end up on the trip with the girls who wanted to do crazy weird stuff, like ride a canoe down a mountain, nearly always convincing me that everyone was going to die. It's a great camp-- My mother LOVED IT, as did my aunt and cousin, when they went, but, alas, I couldn't uphold the family trippin' spirit, and, like you, hid in my tent, mostly.
I remember that was the year that my parents decided it would be good for my character to go to somewhere other than arts camp. I wrote so many embarassing letters home.
I was lucky though, I got picked to go on really short hiking trip for my expedition and got to bypass the portaging and swimming moose (I think they did this because I skipped every one of my canoe and swimming lessons. what a rebel.)
My cousin also went and loved it. I guess she's a lot tougher.
OH! and it was on an island so there was NO ESCAPE!
Anyways, we both survived. Also I love the portraits.

Not sure what to envy more, the talent or the
"im not thinking about wrecking havoc BWhWHahah"-staring cute cat.
Congrats on both though.

Did you know?
Boing Boing has a post about you today, it is here
i really enjoyed your ustream
it was fun to see you in action
and it amazes me how you manage to get so much at done
i also wanted to say that the scan of you work
loses something some how
in the video, when you did the close up
i all the fine details and shading stood out
i guess what i am saying is you are a better artist then i first thought
keep up the good work
Hi, I saw your comics linked on BoingBoing this week and I really like your art! I hope you don't mind that I added you as an LJ friend. Your cat is really cute, BTW. :-)
Those portraits are awesome - I'm insanely jealous of your talent. How lucky you are to be doing something you so obviously love!
Your artwork is awesome!!!
I looooove The Nanny!
Although I noticed recently that they have an all-white cast much like Friends but I still love both shows.
Great portraits, I love them all!
I don't know if it will bother you, but Flansy from TMBG is a lefty.
great set of portraits! In particular I like:
Scully with a side of Mulder: Mulder has just the right amount of Non-expressiveness that David Duchovny demands
Kids in the Hall: you've got Bruce McCulloch down!
I need to take a moment to be incredibly excited that I just saw "I saw You..." (that felt redundant) at my college's book store a few minutes ago. I opened it and went LUCY KNISLEY...but had no one to be randomly gleeful at/with.
