The Log Lady - Twin Peaks by Yamallow The Log Lady - Twin Peaks by Yamallow
***UPDATE***
I have sent the original piece to Catherine Coulson, the actress who played The Log Lady in the series. She sent a note thanking me for the sketch card, along with a signed photo, a signed card with her custom "log" stamp, and the Star Pics trading cards I shamelessly asked her to autograph to me and a friend. She really made my day, and I'm extremely grateful~ The photo is framed on the wall above my desk.

The Log Lady, AKA Margaret Lanterman, is one of the stranger residents in the town of Twin Peaks. She plays a very important role in the series, and assists Agent Cooper in his quest to solve the murder of Laura Palmer.

From the wiki (because I can't write a better description):
The Log Lady is a fixture in the town of Twin Peaks by the time of Laura Palmer's murder, and most residents in the town regard her as crazy. This is mainly due to her habit of always carrying a small log in her arms, with which she seems to share a psychic connection, often dispensing advice and visions of clairvoyance which she claims come from the log; prior to the murder, she delivers moving and cryptic warnings to Laura Palmer herself. The Log Lady does not interpret the messages transmitted by the log, but instead functions as a medium for the information it conveys.

This version was drawn on a trading card size piece of bristol paper with ink and markers. 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Shown slightly larger than actual size. The scanner washes out some of the solid black inks.

If you haven't seen Twin Peaks, start with the US version of the pilot. It's probably my favorite live action TV drama series of all time, even though it never had a proper ending.

It's a fantastic show, and totally unique. Many people try to imitate it, but nobody even comes close in my opinion! It was really cool to be able to contact one of the people who was involved in the series.

I'm glad you like it! It was fun to get to send the original to the actress who played the Log Lady.

It must have been! I was "dragged" by Mother to see Twin Peaks, she loves it and asked me to hunt it down and I ended up seeing too. Too bad I can't find the episodes online...

You might see if you could find a new or used copy of the two early sets or the gold box set on dvd. Perhaps on amazon? I hope you can find them all, it's such a weird and wonderful series~
