RIP H. R. Giger

1940 - 2014

Devastated to hear about the news that Swiss surrealist painter, sculptor, and set designer H. R. Giger has passed away at the age of 74 after suffering injuries from a fall. Now normally I do not deal with painting and sculpting, but I knew of H. R. Giger and his impact on monster making is very important. If you want to know what his connection to Monster Crap is, I can answer that he created what is the designs for the Xenomorphs in the Alien franchise. So because of that, he does sadly have a credit in the film Alien vs. Predator as the original creature designer.

He will be missed.
