Stan Winston: RIP

I have been MIA this week doing a lot of development work on the backend of this site, and I didn't expect to blog at all this week, but hearing this news I decided to take some time.

I have just learned that Stan Winston has died. Stan who? I won't blame you for not knowing his name, but you will certainly be familiar with his work.

Stan is a special effects make-up legend God, famous for his work on - among others - The Thing, Jurassic Park, Terminators 1, 2 and 3, Aliens, Edward Scissorhands, Constantine, and more recently Iron Man. You can see a full list of Stan's work on this wiki. My all time favourite Stan Winston creation is without a doubt the .

Every self respecting geek should also have a copy of in their collection. If you don't then .

Stan died peacefully at his home last night (June 15) after fighting multiple myeloma for seven years.

Awww :'(

I didn't know who this guy was until just now, but I love a lot of those movies in which there are awesome special effects and well made-up characters.

This is a sad day :-(
