I am so fortunate to be a member of a Christian community with a pool of creative individuals alike. And that I was commissioned to art direct and design the Brush & Shutter book for the benefit of our less fortunate brethren and fellow Filipino. Thanks be to God for the gift of talent, and to the people behind these magnificent undertaking, namely, Brother Eli Soriano and Kuya Daniel Razon.
Excerpt from the Brush&Shutter preface:
“Ideas for this collaborative art book were conceived with the help of the Almighty and by taking after the good examples set by Bro. Eliseo F. Soriano and Kuya Daniel S. Razon with the free services they have started. The artworks contained in this book are from the exhibit, Brush and Shutter, which was the response of participating painters to Kuya Daniel Razon’s Isang Araw Lang (Just One Day) campaign that encourages people to share even just one day in helping others. The beneficiaries for this art event are the students under Kamanggagawa Foundation’s Free College Education Program that covers not only tuition fees but even the basic needs of scholars with its free meals, uniforms and books.
People often wonder what doing good would give in return-it is that sense of fulfillment that you had performed your purpose of being created which is to do good to others. Similar to the sun that exists to give out generously its heat and contentedly bid farewell to let the world sleep. Like the white bloom in its entire splendor, humbly acknowledges that she was designed to bear her gold pollen crown in honor of her Creator. Just as butterflies flutter their graceful wings thankful for their worthwhile albeit short existence, man pays tribute to the Almighty in doing good to other people.
This book not only shows Kuya Daniel Razon’s photography concepts on beauty and grace in splendid harmony rendered in painting; this book features — the Art of Giving.”
