[vox] [Semi-OT] Photographers and artists needed for Open Sourceproject (Tux Paint)

In case anyone here is an artist or photographer, or is in contact with any
(especially any groups, such as a local photography club), the 'Tux Paint'
project is looking for contributions.

A press release is available that contains the full 'Call for Contributions',
which can be seen here:


To quote the beginning:

  The Tux Paint project [ http://www.tuxpaint.org/ ] is seeking
  contributions of new content to be included in the next release
  of their award-winning Open Source drawing software for children.

  Volunteers with skills in photography, image manipulation and drawing
  are sought to help expand Tux Paint's collection of "rubber stamp"
  imagery (pre-drawn and photorealistic objects that can be placed in
  drawings) and coloring-book-style "starter" templates (scenes which can
  be colored and stamped upon).


Please feel free to Cc me (bill@newbreedsoftware.com), so I can keep track
of who has been contacted, to try and prevent contacting people and groups
multiple times. ;^)

Also, even if you're not a photographer, and are no good with pen, pencil,
ink, mouse or tablet, you can probably help contribute.  There are a lot of
freely available works (e.g., photographs on Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons)
that need to be hunted, cropped and otherwise edited for Tux Paint's

Thanks in advance for your help!
