This almost no doubt not possible, but I thought I'd give it a whirl.  

Seems like someone in my organization printed out a jpeg (that was on a networked drive) to a networked printer, and apparently this was an offensive image.  Would there be anything in the windows log that would
a) Show an image being printed
b) the user that printed the image

If auditiing was enabled on the file/folder with the required level of logging then it just may be possible to see who accessed the file - in reality I doubt you have logging enabled at this level (the log would be huge), so sadly there is no way of determining this from the logs

Look in your server's system log for Source "Print" Event ID "10" - NOTE: this COULD take a while to sort through depending on how many users/printers/etc.

The information you can expect to find is something like this:
<document/File name> owned by <username> was printed on <printerName> via port <portName>.  Size in bytes: <byte count>; pages printed: <pages>
