Bill Cravens in Birdie's SFI stage

In Birdie's SFI stage you can see a graffiti piece in the background on the wall of a pub. It says "Bill Cravens" and show's a guys head (see picture).

Bill Cravens is a former Capcom USA VP of Sales & Marketing (and former president of Vectorbeam) who made it into the Japanese game Street Fighter/Fighting Street, something that no Capcom USA member will ever achieve again.
Here is a long text about him and Vectorbeam by an ex-colleague:

Gaming legend Bill Cravens passes away

You always hear about the guys who create the games, or the ones who rack up the high scores, but you rarely hear about the people who toil behind the scenes to bring you the gaming experience. The unsung heroes of the video game realm. Bill Cravens, who for years worked as a distributor of coin-op games and was responsible for helping to haul the industry back to its feet after the arcade crash of the 80s, and during the slump of the 90s, was one of those heroes. He sold some of the first Pong games, and distributed games like Mr. Do, Super Punch Out, Final Fight, Street Fighter and Golden Tee 3D (to which bar owners around the world owe him a giant debt of gratitude for). In a fitting tribute while he was still with us, Bill's name and picture were painted on one of the backgrounds in the original Street Fighter game. If you ever saw this and wondered who Bill Cravens was, now you know. Bill passed away recently during his sleep, and he will be missed.
