Hans Ruedi "H.R." Giger was a Swiss surrealist painter, whose style was adapted for many forms of media, including record albums, furniture, tattoos and film. He was also one of my Mentors as a Mechanical Surrealist Artist. Hard to believe three years have passed since his Death. I created this Xenomorph Queen Bike shortly after his Death as a Tribute.

Not many People know that Bob Ross of Joy of Painting had a 9 month apprenticeship With Giger. He even painted nine works in the Giger style but they were lost in a fire in Prague in 2006.

H.R. Giger (RIP) deserve a tribute IMO. Gumby, your work is fabulous.

Interestingly, Giger wanted the adult female Alien (in Alien) to be xeno-erotic (and deadly via kisses) and the baby alien as bambi-like so we would find ways to like them more (or to identify with them via human and animal traits), which Fox really didn't use or take far enough and so Giger may have taken that badly. As an artist I would feel the same way. In the same way one writes a novel and the publisher edits it beyond recognition.
