In March 2013, I had a principal with a strong vision for Canda National High School. Mr. Jessie V. Vasquez requested me to help put his vision in the yearbook cover. He had actually challenged me to be friends with Adobe Photoshop. That time, I was just starting to explore the program.
So it was a collaboration with the principal himself, Mark Glenn Beniten, a Fourth Year student who is a great artist, and Mr. Janlo Robil, my ever reliable friend (who is an Ateneo Professor). After the conceptualization and drawing and digital enhancement, the final product shown below was used as the cover of the yearbook.
The original sketches by Glenn:
Janlo Robil put the colors. I only finalized it with photos and other digital enhancements.
I was so happy to see the yearbook with this cover! And of course, so blissful to see that a vision was put in a cover to be seen by all.
