Happy Birthday H.R. Giger

Happy 68th Birthday H.R. Giger. The Swiss surrealist artist is probably best known for his design work on Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979) but has also done album covers for Debbie Harry, Danzig, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. His artwork used as a poster for the Dead Kennedys’ album Frankenchrist caused quite a stir and arrest & trial for Jello Biafra.

Giger has decades of stunningly original artwork and design in his portfolio.
