We all know what the typical artist impression of an Alien looks like. But I am wondering, where did this impression come from? Who started using this sort of style for an alien? Did they see a real alien and drew it? Why is this drawing of an alien used everywhere?

Interesting question - where did this image originate and who reported it first?

Out West here there are many ancient pictographs by the native americans that make you wonder. Here's a photo of one them sent in to coast to coast. Pictographs

There are also more pictures here that might be of some assistance.

I think the classic alien grey may have been brought about by the alien autopsy video but Im just guessing.

The alien as Greys have been around since the "astounding ufo" comics of the 70's.

There were a number of sightings that look like this, but all in all, I think they are a conventionalized portrait of what the couple that first reported missing time saw.

If you think about it, the discription is very similar to folkloric accounts of fairies and elves. Small people with big eyes and pointed ears; they can read your mind. . . Fairies were sometimes said to dress in gray.

As far as the tiny red dot near the left eye, I think its subliminable. Probably a post-hypnotic trigger of some kind. Maybe it's where they put the chip in.

Im not 100% positive, but I think the description of the greys started to come about when people started to claim to be visited by aliens. Betty and Barney Hill are 2 people who had encounters years ago. They described the greys as we see them depicted now, as well as a few different types of aliens. Here is a link to an interview with Betty Hill.

That's it, kidfinger. Thanks. The Hills are the ones I was trying to think of. Very good.

All I could think of was Barney Franks.

Here is something I found. Scroll half way down to see Aleister Crowleys drawing of an alien he says he was in contact with in 1919. Interesting reading also. It don't look like your typical grey, but close.

Whitley Strieber in 1985 launched his book Communion followed by Transformation about his abductions, with a picture of a Grey on the cover. Thats the first time I saw a picture of the face.

Though I try to keep posting these pics the original site keeps overwriting them. These photos are of Greys back in the 80's.

To be honest I dont think the average alien has either a very meek attempt at an indian red dot in the forehead, or a zit.

The alien as Greys have been around since the "astounding ufo" comics of the 70's.
What about the 1941 Missouri crash? Or the Alaska grey style alien photo from the early 30's?
