I am myself somewhat guilty of this and not blogged much about clipart
lately (but if this is an excuse, I have not worked much on clipart
lately - shame on me)

The feed from http://openclipart.org/media/editorial/picks/, namely
This is not good for aggregating in planet (see below).

The editors picks feed does not contain the clipart thumbnails in a way
usable by PlanetPlanet, so aggregating them will give only a link to the
title, pleasee keep "clipart of the week" on the main page news until we
have an usable feed for editors picks.

Sure, a change in CSS is much needed, the old one was made to fit the
look of the main site, now the look of the site was changed, the planet
look should be updated also.
I don't think will be able to work myself on this in the near future, so
any help is appreciated.
