This guy basically influenced alot of artists I was browsing though his gallery and I found some of his stuff is similar in the MMO online game Rift.


I don't think any modern artist is going to top this guy.

I hate that he died in such a way. What was shown of his home in the 80's documentary The Occult Experience revealed that he surrounded himself with his own art large sculptures, realized practical designs, paintings everywhere. How bizarre would that be if one of those things caused his fall. Like a friend of mine said, just sitting at his dining room table could kill you.
