Social media has become flooded with fist characters. Have you seen it yet?
The character was originally Kevin’s artwork, also known as Tarantadong Kalbo. The Artwork went viral after his fellow artists used his
‘fist characters’ to refer to themselves, thus creating their own version.
The trend is now called “Tumindig”. In case you are unfamiliar with the word, ‘Tumindig’ is a Filipino word that literally means “to stand firmly” or “to rise”. Through his drawing, he represented this concept with one fist visibly standing while the others kneel.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, he said:
I made it out of frustration because I felt at the time that nothing was happening.
He said he started feeling nervous the more viral his work became, as people took Tumindig to heart and made their own versions.
At first, I was elated. ‘Someone was inserting their own art’…But later on, I became nervous that’s why I sought help from Dakila to collect all entries and combine them. Until now, many still submit their entries.
Of course our Art Toy Artist Friends joined the Tumindig Challenge too! Check out their amazing artworks!
