H.R. Giger, the Swiss surrealist artist best known for designing the iconic \xenomorph\ creature in the Alien movie franchise, has died. Giger was born in Chur, Switzerland in 1940, later studying architecture and industrial design at Zurichs School of Applied Arts. It was that book that inspired Ridley Scott in the pre-production phases of Alien, and Scott hired Giger to produce concept art for the film. The Alien creature was based on a Giger print named Necronom IV, and marked a major departure from the cliched green men often seen in movies until then.
