The man behind Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet drinks around 20 cups of coffee a day. In this interview he tells why it’s “part of the art life.”

David Lynch on Coffee and the Art Life

Do you feel like coffee helps to inspire your work?
Yes. You know there’s a thing—since I was in high school, I read a book called The Art Spirit by Robert Henri, and in it he talks about this art spirit that transformed itself into the art life for me. Coffee is part of the art life. I don’t know quite how it works, but it makes you feel really good and it serves the creative process. It goes hand in hand with painting for sure.

In essence, what’s in a cup of coffee for you?
A good friend.
