It's not in the file name, but it "is" in the tool-tip.

Nope. Good guess, though. No, I'm pretty fond of this guy. Moreso than Freud.

Yeah, but it is more mental exercising to try to recognize the face without the title...I thought it was on the inside cover of an old copy of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ( which Gyromild hinted at with the Nemo fish i.e. Capt'n Nemo of the submarine Nautilis).

Jules Verne? That is perfect for this site - well done, that man. Now, will we have a rash of classic SF authors being used as avatars...?

I in fact drew it from that book cover. I can't remember which book it was, though. Might have been the story of his life.

At first sight, I thought it was Victor Hugo.
Then I saw the file name and found the correct answer =o)
