I can't say that I knew much about the guy. Name and familiarity with his work. But I have always been fascinated by his work. His own genre to be sure, and it spoke to me in a very unusual way. Completely dumb-founding and absolutely fascinating. How could a human mind see these things and express them?

Since, I have been doing a little more reading here-n-there about him. Re-occurring nightmares of stairs leading down into darkness. Humble on the outside, twisted in his work. I don't know if words like genius, brilliant, or visionary fit.

The only way I can describe him is to say that he is, indeed, his own genre.

I can't help but wonder if there will be a Giger Festival. Or what fan-based memorials/tributes will be like.
