Patrick Monkel is the author of the wallpaper featured on this week's Wallpaper of the Week section. His design is a composition blending photos and a few color gradients, producing an outstanding effect. We asked if Patrick could share with us a case study showing how he did that, so, fortunately for us, he was very kind and did that :)
