Crisco BL

My name is Sabelo Crisco Dlamini better known as Crisco BL. I’m an illustrator based in Durban. I’ve been illustrating for about a year & unlike other digital illustrators, I use my phone instead of a laptop to create my paintings.
My art is based on Depression, Anxiety & Anti Self Harm. The reason as to why I base my illustrations around these things is because I don’t think they are spoken of as much as they should be nor are they taken seriously. My illustrations or a form of self-reflection, things that I’ve gone through myself. I feel that in doing this, people can relate to my art as much as I do. 
A lot of teenagers these days go through the above mentioned and don’t have the platform to talk about it or express it. I want to make art that makes people feel like they’re not alone and that there are ways to deal with their pain.

Ernest Mojela

My name is Ernest Mojela, I am the Founder and Creative Director of Mini Me Large Lifestyle, a fashion, youth and events driven platform.

I am 19 years old and based in Cape Town, almost enroute to Jozi (I can't wait), Cape Town will always be my home and number one destination but the boy needs to flourish and I feel Jozi is the best place for me at the moment. My journey so far has had it's highs and lows but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I've learnt so much over the past year that will benefit me in the future.

Over the next year I will be taking more time to learn more and nourish my knowledge for the whole fashion and creative industry. I'll be doing 2 courses in Johannesburg, one in Creative Design (Fashion) and the other in Digital Brand Strategy. I will also be surrounding myself with successful influencers and designers who I look up to in the same industry as me, who will act as mentors to me.

One day I look at owning the biggest creative agency in South Africa, youth creative platform and events agency, which is accredited internationally. Oh and also a clothing line (It's fire, trust me) that I am working on with Angnathi Beyile (@theyoungshepherdboy) this year when I get to Jozi and maybe I'll drop a mixtape along the way, who knows ;)
