It was just one week ago when we learned of the sad passing of H.R. Giger, the surrealist artist and iconic designer of the titular ALIEN in Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi/horror classic. His stunning work for the film included the creation of Scott’s eponymous Alien, which was so frightening that even screenwriter Dan O’Bannon found himself cringing, sharing “His paintings had a profound effect on me. I had never seen anything that was quite as horrible and at the same time as beautiful as his work. And so I ended up writing a script about a Giger monster." Now we have a look at some of Giger's concept art for ALIEN, and it's just as terrifying as you would imagine.

These images come from Titan Books' "The Alien Archive", by Mark Salisbury, and show that Giger's concept art is as scary as anything that ended up onscreen. It's incredible work that we feel deserved to be shared.
