Twin Peaks is one of my all time favorite TV shows. The story is a strange and surreal mystery full of weird and wonderful characters and revolves around the death of it’s central character Laura Palmer.

Created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, the show first aired in the US on April 8, 1990 on ABC and set a new standard for television shows that followed.

One of the most iconic scenes of the show is ‘Audrey’s Dance’, a scene where the character Audrey Horne played by Sherilyn Fenn unexpectedly begins dancing to the slow jazzy music playing on the jukebox. As she dances to the music she seems to be oblivious to the fact that she’s in a crowded diner, seeming to be in a kind of trance or under the power of a strange and unexplained force.

The whole scene appears to have a dream like quality which is further emphasised by Audrey’s dialogue, “God, I love this music. Isn’t it too dreamy?”.

David Lynch has an amazing visual style which I find inspiring, I thought it would be fun to pay homage to this scene with an illustration. In this drawing I added some elements of the show such as the mysterious black lodge surrounded by sycamore trees and in the middle is Audrey dancing eerily away to the spell of a trance like tune.
