Artist note: When Sir Kevin, the creator of Tarantadong Kalbo started the #Tumindig illustration instantly became a powerful movement. A lot of people joined, created and posted a fist artwork representing themselves standing up against the country’s biggest oppressors. With the #Tumindig symbols everywhere across all social media platforms, I asked myself what would the Philippines feel about the movement if she is a person. My artwork is what I think, the reaction of our Island when she sees that someone out there is standing up for her and her people.
