H.R. Giger dead at 74

Renowned artist and creator of one of the most iconic science fiction monsters of all time, H.R. Giger has passed away at age 74.

The Swiss artist created horrific, biomechanical art for musicians and other media but came to global fame with his designs for 1979’s Alien for which he was awarded an Oscar.

I think we can all attribute at least one restless night of sleep to his creations.
