#SigawDarna Lets Artist Reimagine Mars Ravelo’s Darna
There’s a new movement going on called #SigawDarna which lets artist share their own take on Darna after a failed attempt to get a new series done. Here are some of the cool stuff that artists on Facebook and Twitter shared.
The hashtag Sigaw Darna started out after Jemuel Bernaldez and PumaPodcast COO Carljoe Javier posted their rejected Darna pitch. From that it snowballed into this. And man, what beauty it has spawned. Other artists like Rian Gonzales and Cy Vendivil also chimed in on the concept.

The people who started the Twitter hashtag namely Carl Javier and Adam David definitely wanted to show what Darna could, what her potential was and how strong her impact was to modern artists.
David wrote a lengthy post on Facebook regarding the genesis of this project which you can read HERE.
Carljoe was also recently interviewed by the female network which you can read HERE.
Here’s an excerpt taken from the interview.
We got was a lot of really aggressive pushback. And to put this in context, we got a lot, a whole lot of love for the designs. Lots of people shared them, lots of people commented, fan art was already getting made. But the vocal and loud minority was very very aggressive about demanding more of the same.
What do you guys think about #SigawDarna? Have you contributed your art yet?
