Gold Afternoon Fix should have been a consolidation of the band's increased commercial profile and cachet after "Under the Milky Way," heightened by the welcome reissue of the band's first five albums. Unfortunately, the Church's original choice for producer – John Paul Jones, who likely would have helped oversee a total masterpiece – was rejected, leading to another session with Wachtel. This time the balance between accessibility and art didn't succeed as planned. The end result is an album that's sometimes fantastic, sometimes merely there.
Enter into another of Bert Monroy's Dreamscapes. This series shows how to create original artwork by compositing images in Photoshop. Using ordinary photographs, Bert is able to create extraordinary compositions. Here he repurposes some photos he's collected from his travels for each of the elements of his mushroom house, a cozy cottage straight from a fairy tale. It all starts with a mushroom (shot with Bert's iPhone), a chimney and backdrop from Tuscany, and some other image details from his own backyard. Use the exercise files or your own assets to create your own dream house with Photoshop.
