RIP HR Giger. There aren't an immense amount of people that I have never met that has left a very large mark on my life, but he was one of them. Such a strange coincidence too, as I was just watching Jodorowsky's Dune yesterday and took that screenshot of him during an interview segment.

This truly dark and visionary artist was responsible for THE BEST creature design ever that induced more than several nightmares for me as as a kid and probably for millions of other children and adults worldwide. I can't even begin to imagine how many artists, film makers, authors, and musicians that this man's truly disturbingly beautiful masterpieces influenced over the years. May your darkness burn so black for eternity.

There are a bunch of great HR Giger shorts and documentaries on Vimeo and Youtube for free, so view them in celebration!
