H.R. Giger

H.R. Giger turned 70 today and Wired ran a couple of articles (some NSFW, here and here) to commemorate his birthday. Giger's work is as instantly recognizable as it is intriguing and disturbing. Like most people, I first became aware of Giger after seeing Ridley Scott's Alien, but of course his body of work far exceeds that. There is even a Giger museum which looks like a most interesting destination for the non-tourist like me.
