Ubuntu Studio Art Manager

I could contribute some things, but I don't know about being a art manager..

If you could put together a package of the images of a complete package, it
would give us something to play around with, and I'm sure someone could come
up with some themes, but it's not clear where these bitmaps reside.  Also I
could arrange to make blender blend files that would manage the compositing
and texturing/lighting/rendering of the elements, which is something you can
do with blender. You can run blender like a blackbox, providing input and
generating output, I once wrangled and animation unattended from a Makefile.

I think any single theme, is a bad idea.. IF it's going to be about
creativity, it should permit a wide range of themes, and these should be
community created.. That means the elements should be accessible and
selective by the community, as what good is a creative operating system if
the elements of the interface are not being created by it's creative users.
