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.

I'm currently trying to finish my Personal Training qualification in order to get some experience on a cruise liner. I've never been 100% sure on what I want to do; career wise, but I know that life is too short not to start somewhere. On the other hand I do enjoy my hobbies, which include competitive fitness shows - I've been doing this for the past two years and it is something I am truly passionate about. I've attained some amazing sponsors who believe in my hard work; in and out of the gym, and having that support system definitely drives me to succeed even further.
