RIP HR Giger

RIP, Fantastic artist...if a little strange.
Pedants are men who would appear to be learned, without the necessary ingredient of knowledge.

His artwork was out of this world.... literally. He designed all the alien stuff in the film, not just the alien itself. Ridley Scott gave him free reign over that and it worked brilliantly.

One fact from the first film is that Ridley did not tell the actors that there would be blood when the chest burster came out. So when you see shock on screen, it's real.

I'll never forget that moment.

Awesome visual artist/designer. I studied his work at college and was very fascinating. A true revolutionist.
