The artwork is in the usplash source package, and I *think* it gets compiled
in at build time (otherwise it'd get stuck in the cpio file for initramfs)
The file to change is usplash-artwork.png, and there are various other artwork 
packages already in ubuntu, such as kubuntu-usplash-artwork.
I don't think it's possible to randomly choose an image, without having all 
the images built in.
