It is with great sadness to announce that H.R.Giger, the artist behind the design for the creatures in Alien has passed away at 74. He died in hospital yesterday after the results of the injuries he sustained in a fall in his native Switzerland.
He was the man that brought nightmares to countless people for his work in the Alien franchise, but also worked on Species, Poltergeist and the brilliantly names Killer Condom.
Whilst many be be familiar with his work, he name was not always known to the masses and it is a shame that only now will some people know who the man is because of his passing.
He will be sadly missed.
