I am "artist in chief" for Kubuntu in the edgy cycle, which does not  
mean that I will make all the artwork myself, but rather that I will  
help others to create a theme which is decidedly kubuntu :-) If you  
are interested in joining the effort, by all means, do so!

Note that the wiki (http://wiki.kubuntu.org/Artwork) is the best  
place to find current info about artwork (check http:// 
wiki.kubuntu.org/Artwork/Incoming for the latest stuff).

Kubuntu hopes to have it's own look while in some ways relating to  
Ubuntu, as do all the other projects. The idea is to allow as much  
freedom as possible between the projects (not hinder creativity)  
while creating a look and feel for each which is individual enough to  
stand on it's own or next to the others and be recognizable as a  
related project.

Bye,
Ken
