HR Giger Passed Away

HR Giger passed away at 74

The man who brought us the Xenomorph and production design for Species has passed on.  His style was very unique and had seen use in Dark Seed game franchise.  He published his Necronomicon in the 70s, and his surrealist paintings found their way into museums, tattoo designs, and record album covers, most notably the "[ray splasher] landscape" for Dead Kennedys.

HR Giger is one of my favorite artists, and many others have been influenced by his style, which can be seen in some very unlikely places (Mewtwo's fortress on New Island has a very Giger-influenced motif).  While Giger may be gone, his work will live on through others.
