Hans Rüdi Giger № 21
One year later Giger received an Oscar for 'Best Achievement for Visual Effects' regarding his contribution to the Alien movie. During the Oscar event Giger met Debbie Harry, who was known as the singer Blondie. Blondie asked Giger to design the cover for her new album. Giger accepted and after that a lot of other pop artists followed her example. During the same period, around 1980, the Penthouse magazine published Giger his erotic paintings which was a great success.
