When I looked at the picture in the opening Post above, I assumed it was the cover art for a Black Metal CD.

RIP. It's sh*t when your heroes leave this mortal coil.

Giger, along with Mobius and Escher were/are true visionaries. We need more people like him. RIP /

I never liked much of his art, but there's no denying that he was a genius set designer whose work was hugely influential in that arena. A sad loss.

One of the great visionaries of our time, what a legacy. Really sad to see him go.

R.I.P. H.R. Geiger, thanks for the inspiration.

Died at 74, from injuries caused by a fall?

Sucks. A lot.
