Father of the xenomorph fell down of some stairs in his home and died


You had a beautiful mind.
And gave me the greatest night terrors of all time

Geiger did fantastic work, shame that he passed. Here is the Brain Salad Surgery cover on the Emerson Lake and Palmer album;

Inside BiFold Cover. There is some really nice artwork in this link, use the arrow keys and you'll see stuff that looks like it is from Prometheus.

Cheers - Dave

Damn shame,Giger was a one of a kind visionary-to me it was almost as though he could see different dimensions.
My bro is gutted to hear about this as well.Hes a big fan and last year he went to the Giger museum/bar in Gruyere.
The bar contains the "harkonnen chairs" which he designed for "Dune."I don't think they eneded up in the film,but they are seriously cool I think:



RIP H R Giger.

It is off to the afterlife, where knowledge of our universe abounds. Have a great time seeing all that is and how alien being from various parts truly look. I have some ideas of the scary ones thanks to those created by this outstanding creator and artist.

Thank you for the sleepless nights and the childhood fear that I'm just now starting to overcome.

Thank you, Mr Geiger

Rest in peace H. R. Giger!

Rest in peace. He was a visionary and technical master. There will never be another like him. I feel my eyes getting wet.
