    Dayuuummm!

    The granddaddy of bio-mech & not so subtle representation of the female genitalia in art is gone.

    Fuuuuuuuuuuu...


    RIP

    Unfortunate to hear. He was an artistic legend.

    Cuffs is going to be heart broken...

    Debbie Harry's just been on Good Morning America, I wonder if they had much to do with each other or if he purely just did the art work?

    Dude was chiefly responsible for two of my favourite movies of all time in Alien and Aliens. I never thought that I would be anything other than repulsed by rape-based imagery and art, but here we are.

    I've just been looking through my Giger books, he really was incredible. What a stupid way to go.
