Eraser head: David Lynch's sketches – in pictures

This year the acclaimed director of Mulholland Drive turned to music, releasing a decidedly weird album called Crazy Clown Time. Now publisher Steidl has collated a book, Works on Paper, featuring more than 500 of his drawings dating from the 1960s onwards. But are they Turner prize or turn away? You decide

Lynch's doodles appear on anything he had to hand. Cinematographer Frederick Elmes was the director of photography on Blue Velvet, so it's possible this drawing was completed during its filming. Photograph: Steidl/Fondation Cartier

Two works that form a kind of mini-suite are drawn on a matchbox. Is the long central shape in the lower one a cave opening or a towering beast?Photograph: Steidl/Fondation Cartier

Finally, the director captures perfectly the likeness of a 'Brunsing pig'. Or maybe that's 'Brunoing'. If you haven't seen either, they both look like this. Photograph: Steidl/Fondation Cartier
