That artist. You know the one.

Name-That-Artist-Filter: Posted to the blue a couple years ago. Male painter. Possibly lived in California. Somewhat well known. Pictures of Victorian-era girls and teddy bears and other animals, some with slightly oversized heads and eyes, all with a vaguely weirdish feel to them. Sorry, that's all I can remember. Thanks in advance for hoping me.

identify this painting?

Can you identify this painting (164KB, flickr) for a friend? She's had it as wallpaper for awhile but doesn't know where she got it from. It looks Picasso-esque to me but I don't think it is him, not that I've got a great knowledge of his work.

How do I successfully make a floor cloth out of marine vinyl fabric?

I'm making a floor cloth for our kitchen. The instructions I've found online called for canvas. I bought marine vinyl fabric instead of duck cloth canvas since it seemed sturdier. Now I'm wondering if I need to prime it. What will Kilz do to marine vinyl fabric? Do I need to paint the back of it? Anyone ever make a floor cloth? Any tips and hints are much appreciated.

Who's the ape who drew its own cage?

The tale: an ape in a zoo is taught how to draw. The first thing it draws is the bars of its cage. I've heard this story a couple of times (often in connection with Vladimir Nabokov), but can't find any information about the original experiment. Did this actually happen? Is it just a fable? Did Nabokov get Punk'd? Who was this ape and where can I find out more?

ART Filter - I want to paint on top of a pencil drawing without smearing it. Suggestions?

Fellow artists, I have drawn in pencil on a 24" x 30" gessoed wood panel. I would like to seal the drawing before painting on top of it. I've thought of spraying it with Damar varnish or coating it with acrylic gloss medium. My goal is to not smear the drawing. I can work in acrylic or oil. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks!
