Since this list was kindly posted, displaying what needs to be done, and since
we really need to do something, I've gone through the list whilst browsing
http://art.ubuntu.com, http://www.ubuntuforums.org/gallery and
http://www.gnome-look.org and added possible items to add or use as 'fillers'
for stuff we don't get to finish.
This is absolutely nothing definite, but, nonetheless a list of some pretty
good stuff of which I certainly wouldn't mind seeing some stuff in
Cheers, and kind regards to everyone.

Note: I've basically gone through this, browsed GNOME-Look.org, the artwork on ubuntuforums.org and art.ubuntu.com for possible candidates and added them and their respective URLs the list where appropriate. This is just a suggestion for possible choices, simply because the deadline is in fact tomorrow, and we really need to do something! As soon as possible.
Alrighty, happy browsing.
#BEFORE ARTWORK DEADLINE (2005-09-29)
# The six calender wallpapers should have a
# common red thread - maybe even a history.
Not sure who exactly wanted to do these, though I saw that Mikkel Kamstrup Erlandsen had some nice ideas.
# Three or four _really_ different wallpapers.
# Not just the ubuntu logo in different layouts.
# Maybe targeting different user groups. Suggested
# types of wallpapers:
# - Children (Colours, cute cartoons. As a last resort we could use one from Edubuntu)
# - Teenagers (Go for cool factor. See fx. http://art.ubuntu.com/images/backgrounds/Ubuntu-UbuntuGlasses_1600x1200.jpg)
# - Abstract (like http://art.ubuntu.com/download/backgrounds/ubuntu/3/swirls.svg)
# - Realistic (a reworked photo or something)
Alright, I'll give this a go. All of the following are either in 1600x1200 (thus resizeable to smaller versions) or in SVG:
'Child's Play' [!!!!]: http://art.ubuntu.com/backgrounds/ubuntu/44
'Back to the nature': http://art.ubuntu.com/backgrounds/ubuntu/28
'Breezy Badger Cool (BBC) for Ubuntu 5.10': http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=23218
'Breezy Badger': http://art.ubuntu.com/backgrounds/ubuntu/50
- following discussion from the mailing list, we are awaiting the SVG for this piece by Nikolai Dunkel.
'Ubuntu Breezy Badger-mouse' (one without the creature!): http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=28693
'Ubuntu Clean': http://art.ubuntu.com/backgrounds/ubuntu/23
'Three Ubuntu Wallpapers' [SVG]: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=29567
'African Pottery': http://ubuntuforums.org/gallery/showimage.php?i=615&c=5
'Ubuntu Mantis background': http://ubuntuforums.org/gallery/showimage.php?i=871&c=5

If we are still low on photography, we could contact Garret LeSage from http://linuxart.com
#Whether or not a whole theme is likely to be accepted for Breezy is
#questionable. Maybe we should stick to Andys icons for Breezy. If
#we do want to create one we need the following
# - Metacity Theme (Window borders)
# I suggest Pilgrim
# (see http://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13305)
# - GTK Theme (Controls)
# Engine should be Clearlooks. Tweak gtkrc.
# - Icon Theme
# Humility, Andy Fitzsimon.
# ? Does he/you want a revision team or help.
# ? Defer
Other suggestions to be added (there can be several shipped, IIRC):
'Ubuntu GNU/Linux Greeter': http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=23920
'GDM Ubuntix butterfly theme': http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=26937
'Ubuntu Human User-list': http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=22926
'Ubuntu World': http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=24719
# ? Who did the one for Hoary ?
Currently only as a mockup. A full screen splash (can this be even done, technically?):
Otherwise, if we don't want to stick with the one from Hoary:
'Ubuntu World': http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=23943
'chocolate splash screen - ubuntu': http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=18027
# ? Should reflect default breezy theme (out of our scope)
#BEFORE BREEZY RELEASE (2005-10-13)
#Create flyers to hand out at LUG meetings/conferences/with CDs.
#There might be two or three different flyers, for different target
#audience. Could contain
# - Explanation of the "Free Software Philosophy".
# - What does "Ubuntu" mean.
# - How to use live-cd and installation cd. Thoroughly explain
# the differences.
# - What software is included in the installation
# - A _really_ short introduction to the GNOME desktop
# - More ?
The art team could possibly do this, after the rest of the artwork.
#There are people out there who actually have acces to /&%@Â£$! printers.
#Why don't we take advantage of that and create some real Ubuntu posters?
Same as the Flyers.
##Select a few and promote (or suggest) them as the official Ubuntu buttons.
#This could do well as a "competition" where the art team declares the winner
#and presents it as candidate for official button(s).
Unless we want more, we can draw these from here:
