Default H.R. Giger dead at 74

Fuck. One of my all-time favourite artists has died; he's been a huge influence on sci-fi and fantasy for the last 40 years. A very sad loss.

Nooo! Now there was one who had his own style. His biotechno is by far the most creepy designs I have ever seen. RIP!

Sad day, I have been a fan of his since Necronomicon.

There was a pub/club in my hometown late 90s early 00s with two walls painted with his designs, I think one was Lii2 and the other was one of his landscapes with the babies with needles and pins etc mixed among them.

Many a drunken night trying to explain his work to the inebriated masses.

Sad day indeed, I am however very surprised his death was not penis related.

Truly a great loss for science fiction. But he'll always be remembered through the Xenomorph.

Indeed. One of the best sci-fi creatures to exist, at least in my opinion.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

Always loved his style, and the work of many artists that were influenced by it. RIP
