Alien and HR Giger

Translated with Secret Alien Technology.... 

Alien here!

When I first came to Earth five years ago, Sallie told me about a movie called Alien. I had witnessed hostel beings before in my travels, but I'd never encountered anything to match the imagination of human beings. And so I found myself researching not other Aliens, but the creator of the Alien monster, an artist named HR Giger. 

"H.R.Giger achieved international fame with his work on Ridley Scott's Alien. In 1980, he received the Academy Award for "Best Achievement for Visual Effects" for his designs of the film's title creature and its otherworldly environment." (http://www.hrgiger.com)

It didn't take me long to fall in love with his artwork.  

The mix of human and machine, often called Biomech or Biomechanical Art, might be one way to describe his creations.

Here we see some more Alien beings. 

 Looks like this kitty got eaten by something. Or maybe kitty got a souped up body?  

This looks like something I found in the FBI lab. 

 I'm fascinated by this one. Reverse X-ray?

To find out more about the artist, HR Giger, and his connection to the Alien franchise, be sure to visit his website. http://www.hrgiger.com/

Alien my handsome pal, where have you been(blushing)? Have I been missing your posts or have you been exploring the planet?? This is a very interesting post. My Mom is a big fan of the Alien movies so she found it particularly interesting. Take care and keep in touch(looking down kicking at the dirt), I have missed you.

Didn't we run into him at the Martini Bar a hop, skip and three moons from Jupiter? I seem to remember a long discussion about the meaning of cheeseburgers, I mean life over many many drinks.

Your pal, Pip
