  • Hans Rudi Giger, 1940 - 2014

    It's with a heavy heart that I relay the news that Hans Rudi Giger has died. He was 74.

    It seems he'd recently suffered a bad fall, and simply never got over it.

    He'll be missed by fans of art and of science fiction.

    At least he'll no longer suffer from the nightmares and visions which inspired his great works.

    Damn, this is sad news. Few artists have been as influential as Giger. He's responsible for the visual look of massive swathes of SF films, from Star Wars to Alien and beyond.

    RIP

        Sad indeed. R.I.P.
