Adding custom logo

I want to make the following changes to askbot

  • Change the color of the top bar and the footer bar. Currently this is black color.
  • add a custom logo above the top bar to the left side.

Please tell me which files to modify and what should be size of the logo (in pixels). Any additional advice is welcome.
