While I believe that nothing is original and every artistic endeavor I've ever embarked upon is directly influenced, consciously or unconsciously, by the superior works of others, it was Giger's pioneering use of the airbrush that made me realize there was way to get the images out of my head and onto a canvas exactly as I wanted them to be. He taught me that, and I never had the honor of meeting him or thanking him. An incredible artist. Rest in peace: May 14, 2014....
