The end of an era

I'm very sad that H. R. Giger has died.  He was one of my favourite artists and a lot of my own work is influenced by Giger on some level, although I don't have anywhere near his level of talent.

Giger is best known for his work on the Alien films, but he also did some directing.  This is Giger's Necronomicon from 1975, which I particularly enjoy.  This version was taken from a VHS tape, so the quality isn't the best, but it's still a fascinating film.  If you find a better quality version, let me know.
