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.
You’ve probably noticed that I use a lot of yellow as a background in all my art. Yellow is a colour that is associated with happiness. I use the c…


It's unbelievable how each year of my life was perfectly planned out and now fresh out of high school, I'm not sure where my career path lays. Although I aspire to be a top model I believe that my journey serves a better purpose and not just living for myself but also to inspire others.

Although I've always known I've wanted to be a model since I was a little girl, I dreamt about being able to walk couture clothing on a runway, and take pretty pictures. As fun as it looks, it's a lot of work to create those pretty pictures that seem so effortless.

Hard work and patience goes into becoming a successful model, and I am definitely working my hardest to get there and will continue to. I have a huge passion for modelling and I love being in front of the camera. I mainly shoot streetwear, as well as swimwear but I also enjoy creative projects like body paint or dress up. I am currently modelling for TMA management agency and work with individual photographers but my main photographer is Katlego also known as @kg_dynamic. 

A massive thank you to him for working with me and helping me create magic.

God, he has blessed me in ways I can not imagine. I would never be where I am today if it wasn't for him, I am extremely thankful. It is safe to say 'When Jesus says yes nobody can say no'. Although I am unsure of my future I am also very excited to see what God has in-store for me.

And my family, best friend and boyfriend have all been so supportive in my journey thus far whether it's been taking me to shoots and castings, coming to watch me at shows or just telling me not to give up when it's been really hard. A big thank you to my mom she has really been my rock but they have all kept me grounded and always reminded me to stay humble.

To end off I'd like to thank FutureNow for this incredible opportunity to be featured in their online magazine I'm extremely humbled and thankful for the opportunity.
