Gigerpillar – WIP

So when I was working on the caterpillar, it struck me that I could do a biomechanical version. Obviously inspired by the work of HR Giger, so I named it after him

This variant is even more psychedelic due to a diet of dimethyltryptamine containing mushrooms…


What do you think?


  1. … I saw all of the Alien movies but at that time was not into who the artist or creators were. But this Giger dude, what a brilliant artist. He consulted on Species, Poltergeist II: The Other Side, and took a shot at designing the Batmobile for Batman: Forever (the design was never used).

  2. I love the base version. In the darker version that caterpillar looks ready for one of those Hollywood movies like The Creature From the Black Lagoon.

  3. Incredible is what I think. I am a huge butterfly fan, which means I also love caterpillars. This one is on steroids. Ha! Seriously I have no idea about the artist you referenced. But you know I went and researched and his works are like wow! And then some. Your piece is very close to his. Excellent! The last one has to be my choice.

    • … I realize you are on a whole different level than the butterflies I speak of, just letting you know, that is where my level stops. Until now. You have me researching again. 🙂
