R.I.P H.R. Giger

H.R. Giger passed away at the age of 74 yesterday. He is known for creating the creature for the movie Aliens and for the album cover art he created. I am drawn more to the latter . However, I think the Swiss artist would like to be remembered for his art.

A trailer to the movie...

Here is the cover for Emerson, Lake and Palmer's Brain Salad Surgery

Giger also did the artwork for Danzig's third album How the Gods Kill

He also did the cover for Debbie Harry's Kookoo

These are just a few examples. He will be missed in music, film and in art. However his work will live on.
