Gone Fishing, A Touching Tribute To Jack Nance Inspired By Twin Peaks And Eraserhead

In heaven everything is fine.

Oh, how Jack Nance will be missed in the new episodes of Twin Peaks.

Until today, Jack remains David Lynch‘s most frequent collaborator. Before he played dear Pete Martell, he appeared in Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Dune, Lost Highway, The Cowboy and the Frenchman, and of course, in Eraserhead as the tormented Henry Spencer. The enigmatic actor sadly left us on this day in 1996 after succumbing to a subdural hematoma caused by a blunt-force trauma to the head. Rest in peace, Jack.

Gone Fishing

An artist from Rochester in the UK who goes by the name of RFDS, painted this touching tribute to the Boston-born actor. The artwork refers to the Lady in the Radiator’s earworm of a song, the Eraserhead baby and the first line ever spoken in Twin Peaks… by Jack.

Prints (and other things) of the “Gone Fishing” are available here.
