Swiss painter Hand Rudolf "Ruedi" Giger, well-known for his creature in Ridley's Scott movie "Alien" passed away today (May 13), announces Swiss German TV. He was 74.

The ugliest Alien ever. RIP.

An artist with a unique (and troubled) imagination!

He certainly had a unique vision in his movie art and design, much like Ralph McQuarrie with Star Wars. Interesting that his art was used in a stillborn attempt to film Frank Herbert's sci-fi novel Dune in the 70s, long before David Lynch's version. His graphic art is included in the poster advertising the recent documentary 'Jodorowsky's Dune', which chronicles the attempt to film the novel-with Orson Welles and Salvador DalĂ­ among the cast.

A true original has gone; before his monster, you can really tell that the others were men in rubber suits. R.I.P.
