Many of you won't be surprised to read this. But I absolutely love HR Giger. As a child, I loved the Creature of the Black Lagoon and Metaluna Mutant. I even loved Brundlefly. But most of that changed when I discovered the creature from alien.
How could you not like this thing? I didn't know what attracted me so much to it. Whether it would be the skull hidden behind the membrane carapace or what. But I was hooked. I asked for all the alien toys and I loved them.
Remember those? They were soooooo awesome. I never cared much for the marines and I pretty much had them go off on all the gi joes I had at the time. The aliens always won of course. In my world, I always played as the bad girls and girls always win.
But then later in high school, another movie came out called Species. At that time, I was really into games like Doom, Quake, Starcraft, and Warcraft. But Species was an awesome movie. I saw it the summer I graduated from junior high. The movie itself was kinda boring. But I loved the design of Sil.
So later, I discovered all of this awesome work was done by a Swiss surrealist named HR Giger.
So anyone else fans here and any memories you would like to share?

Aye...HUGE fan. I loved his work for the Mylene Farmer stage...
Not only are you cripplingly ignorant, you whine about it as well.

Yeah, I've loved most of his work for a long time. I can't remember the first image of his work I saw, but Alien was definitely the one that made me a fan.

I love him. The pictures I've seen of the chairs in his home are
amazing. I want chairs like those.

As if it could be any other way. Giger's vision is one of the main reasons i am who i am, completely and utterly obsessed with Sci Fi/Horror and Fantasy.

Oh yeah, Giger's work is absof!#kinglutely amazing! Li II, Mirror Image, Pump Excursion III, are some of my favorites. Definitely one of the most influential artists in recent times.
