RIP HR Giger...

I'm in a state of shock.

Today I'm posting to remember one of my favourite artists who has sadly just died.

HR Giger.

Imagine my shock after happily browsing through the news and coming across a headline that read 'Alien Designer, Giger, Dies at 74'.  A great talent lost.

For those who don't know who Giger is, he designed the Alien for the Aliens series as well as some of the settings and landscapes; he worked on Dune, AND he designed the famous microphone stand for Jonathan Davies, lead singer of Korn. These are just a few of the things he's remembered for.

Read the news article here:

So, RIP HR Giger.  You will be missed by thousands, and our thoughts go out to his family.


  1. So difficult to suffer the loss of a true visionary. RIP, sir.

  2. I don't think there was any other mind quite like his from the things he came up with! A true one off, RIP.
