'Twin Peaks' as You've Never Seen it...Illustrated!

Artist Martin Woutisseth, the man behind the illustrated "Breaking Bad" video, is at it again. This time he has delved into David Lynch's mad world of "Twin Peaks."

Woutisseth offers up some insight to the project on his personal website:

The universe of ‘Twin Peaks’ is so rich that I always wanted to add more symbols, transitions, details, [...]I based my character illustrations on pictures found on the Internet, and put them in a different backgrounds with different light. Kind of like the opening of ‘The Simpsons,’ I wanted to introduce the viewer to the town of ‘Twin Peaks’ and its residents by going from one place to another place with soft transitions, instead of the famous ‘Twin Peaks’ opening titles [...] Sometimes people comment on my illustrations that they’re just photos with an instant Photoshop filter applied to it. That’s not true. It takes hours to make them and portraits have between 100 to 250 layers! I wanted to show up how many layers I use in something more original and graphic design.

This video is about as amazing as a cup of coffee that's black as midnight served up with a slice of cherry pie!
