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.

Emma Smith

My name is Emma Smith and I am a Springbok surfer. I compete on the World Qualifying Series all around the world.

My sponsors are Billabong, Von Zipper, Just Water, Seventy One Percent Sunblock and Stance Socks.

Surfing is such an incredible lifestyle to be apart of. I've learnt and been exposed to so much more than just riding waves and competing. I love that I can surf to train, relax, socialise, alone time, think, get rid of energy and the list goes on. Other than surfing I am rather obsessed with food. Anyone who knows me knows I am constantly thinking of and planning my next meal. Or experimenting and making tasty recipes to show people healthy eating can be delicious. I have a passion for people, food, health and those who have been robbed of an education of health.
