About Alien Bill

Who's Alien Bill?
Alien Bill, the round running alien eyeball, has been Kirk Israel's signature sketch since 1990.

Why an Eyeball?
The all seeing alien, always in motion, looks straight into your karmic aura....

Not really. Mostly he was a good way to end quick notes in highschool, an aesthetically balanced 'guy', sometimes running, sometimes holding up signs containing quick commentary. (He hasn't got a mouth, you see.)

Why 'Bill'?
When it came time to give him a name, Bill seemed like a fairly typical, inoffensive name, the kind you might find anywhere. It has nothing to do with my uncle or the head of any really big technology company with monopolistic tendencies-- if I had it to do again, I might use Alien Bill's little known last name, Jones.
