Album Grain

I picked up the new Black Mountain album this week, and I am in love with the album art.

Turns out the band member that did this cover art, also did the two Zombi covers that I love. I read an interview with him where he points out his use of old National Geographic images, as well as other sources from the 70s.  I always wanted to try to create such a cover as I love the look of this style, so I took a couple random Google images of NG photos, and played around in Photoshop.

An earlier version
Below are the three images I used to create this.  I think I need to now keep my eye open for really old issues of National Geographic, so I can play around with this some more, Pollard style.
