    Nothing on the mainstream news about this other than a few articles from obscure news outlets.

    Love the Alien films and I also remember playing Dark Seed on the Amiga back in the day. His style of art was strange but intriguing.

    Alas, RIP Giger

    Was also the basis for classics like Doom the video game. He was a brilliant artist.

    Great artist but phallic obsessed to the point where he probably had problems.
     
  8. I can imagine the arty farty that there London crowd seeing that at their poncey galleries ..."Hmmm Ruperto what do you see in this one?". "Big c0cks Tarquinius, big c0cks".

    I remember watching Blue Planet or another of those Attenborough documentaries about the deep ocean where all kinds of hideous monstrous fish live in the lowest depths and there's one weird looking thing that the Alien monster was supposedly inspired from.
