I would not doubt Tradition on this, but how did it come to pass that St. Luke is said to be the first iconographer? Are there any of his still around (as in the original?)

Częstochowa, Iverion and Vladimir Icons are said to have been panted by him.

Also the Tikhvin: http://ocafs.oca.org/FeastSaintsLife.asp?FSID=101821
The form of icon where the Theotokos gestures toward her Son (called "the Directress") is a form first painted by St Luke.
You can see on the Vladamir icon that there has been extensive repainting done to the icon, and that the faces of the Mother of God and Christ seem "pasted on". However, it is the faces on the icon which have survived, whilst the rest has been repainted over time. Even those who don't believe that the Vladimir icon dates back to St Luke agree that the faces are the original part of the icon.

As for how it came to pass --- St Luke's Gospel has the greatest amount of all the Gospels written about the Theotokos, including the most complete narrative (in the NT) of the annunciation and the birth of Christ. It is believed St Luke could write this, and also paint icons of the Mother of God, because he knew her personally.

Mosaic of St Luke painting, then having the icons approved by, the Mother of God:

I think that's St. Luke again.

According to tradition the icon of the Theotokos preserved at the Dayro d-Mor Marqos (St. Mark's Monastery) in Jerusalem, is written by St.Luke.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
