Yes, it is legal to do your all artworks, for profit or not, based on
the GIMP art.
AFAIK all artwork that is officially related to the GIMP is licensed
under the GPL, so, if possible, you could attach a text in a label
with the mugs stating that the artwork can be reproduced, as far as
the GPL terms are satisfied. Most people do not do that - and no one
will be sued for nto doing so, certainly.
However, I personally consider a "copyleft" label on stuff that is
indeed copyleft a good thing, in a sense that people that do not
realize that most other things are "copyright" begin to do so.
If you need any further help, yo may contact me in portuguese.
