Twilight meets Twin Peaks by suburbanbeatnik Twilight meets Twin Peaks by suburbanbeatnik
I'm afraid that only two people are going to get this joke, but I couldn't resist doing it anyway. "Twin Peaks"- an amazing TV show from the early '90s, created and directed by David Lynch- was about a quirky FBI man, special Agent Dale Cooper (a young and hot Kyle MacLachlan), investigating the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer in the quirky and mysterious town of Twin Peaks in Washington state. Cooper loved his coffee and cherry pie, which was a recurring motif in the show. It was filmed in North Bend, not so far where I was living in Seattle at the time, and whenever I went to the Mar-T diner (now called Twede's), I would always get a slice of cherry pie. I am sure this is where my current cherry pie fixation comes from.

Reading "Twilight," it wasn't such a jump for me to imagine Agent Cooper in Forks, meeting Bella and Edward from the "Twilight" saga. And of course, there's the cherry pie. You gotta have the pie.

I did this in my Holbein sketchbook, which has nice thick paper that took my four attempts to draw Kyle MacLachlan's beautiful but odd face. I used some acrylics, colored pencils and an India ink pen.

Psych did tribute to "Twin Peaks" called "Twin Spires." It included many of the actors from Twin Peaks and was really well done. They re-run it on Ion TV from time to time. Maybe you can incorporate Shawn and Gus in your next Twin Peaks endeavor? (Although Shawn and Gus meet Bella and Edward would be just awesome! )

I loved that episode! It was hilarious. I still remember it vividly.

Well, speaking of fanart, here's your chance-- I'll be opening up commissions again any day now! :)

Wow! You made the special agent look great! I love the expression on his face, too :XD:

Drawing his face is almost as hard as drawing David Tennant's face...I never feel like I do either of them any justice :/

Kyle MacLachlan is indeed difficult to capture. I don't think I did so badly, all things considering...

Thank you! :)

COOP ! :love: Twin Peaks is the best show ever. I'm re-watching it for the 50th time and I'm still totally in love with every bit of it - and especially, of course, with our Special Agent. Believe it or not, he's the one who made me want to drink black coffee in the first place - and now I'm addicted to it and drinking like 8 cups o'joe a day. =D

Anyway - awesome drawing, and your Coop looks just like Kyle MacLachlan, great job ! (he is SO difficult to draw. I never manage to make him look as gorgeous as he really is. =))

Isn't it a great show? And wasn't Kyle MacLachlan so adorable? That show got me addicted to cherry pie in the worst way.

BTW, I'm planning on offering this pic for sale for Christmas-- I'm offering you first dibs, if you're interested.

As far as regular TV I watch 'Modern Family'. I don't have HBO or anything of the like so I don't get shows that are shown on there. I'm also a huge 'Twilight Zone' fan as well as an 'I Love Lucy' fan. I've also been known to watch 'The X-Files' from time-to-time as well. Mainly I watch movies. You?

"Twilight Zone" is an awesome show. I watch a lot of new shows on basic cable, like "Mad Men," "Burn Notice," "White Collar," and "Spartacus: Blood and Sand." I used to watch "Journeyman" and "Dollhouse" when they were on, though I'm really getting to like "Nikita." "Quantum Leap" is also one of my favorite older shows.

This is really good! Although, I have to say that I like Twin Peaks much much better then Twilight. I would totally read this if it was a fanfic, or fan comic.

I wish someone would write a crossover. It would be awesome. Coop was 10X hotter than any sparklepire.

Having Agent Cooper called in to investigate the deaths and strange sightings in Forks - now *that* movie I would want to see. :D It mesh very nicely with the quirky world of Twin Peaks.

Go Coop!
