Good point :) We can just do basic designs similar to how we took the 
other artwork in F8 and made it into these designs. (E.g., we took f8's 
rhgb to create the gnome and KDE splashes and the wallpaper to create 
the lock dialog)

Yeh, this sounds like a good idea. We should draft a standard email to 
send to art group requesters asking for an introduction and completion 
of a small task with pointers to the design queue or mailing list for 
task assignment.

Definitely, we could shift our schedule according to it as well.

Awesome! Look forward to seeing this :) The wolf you did for the F8 
labels was great.

Ah I completely forgot about this - great idea, I will be sure to bring 
it up!
