    Well, start by creating a gradient, then maybe a layer above that where you can paint or manipulate that gradient into the form that you want. Then there is a layer with a photographic texture in some sort of overlay blending mode.

    That should get you on your way.

    I agree with the above post (creating a gradient). The grunge effect can be obtained by using free photoshop brushes from bittbox.com that you can overlay on top of the gradient. They have all kinds of grunge type brushes for both photoshop and illustrator.

    Hope this helps
