You are putting the cart before the horse.   Noone can build a pretty theme,
it's too difficult, unless you are Steven Wittens (he bud!) who is a PHP
Gawd along with his massive knowledge of the drupal theming systems.
Someone like myself, who knows CSS and can do graphics is at a
disadvantage.  That is why we need the base theme so we can all simply start
hanging pretty stuff on skeletons.

Inkscape is an application.  :)  http://inkscape.org/
