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.

I am a fitness athlete based out of Durban, South Africa. My fitness career began in March 2016 with the IFBB federation. Since then I have won all 3 competitions which include KZN provincials and Nationals (SA Champs), making  me the number one Mens Physique Champion in South Africa in my division. In November 2016 I had the opportunity to represent my country (South Africa) at the prestigious IFBB World Championships that took place in Poland. This opportunity also gave me the chance to earn my colours in South African bodybuilding. I recently graduated with my Bcom Degree with a double major in Marketing and Business Management. I am currently prepping for Arnold Classic Africa which takes place in May. Winning this event will earn me my procard as well as getting to meet the legend himself Arnold Schwarzenegger. #fingerscrossed.

I hope to inspire as many young individuals as possible, i will be happy if I’ve changed just one persons life for the better. My desire for success in all aspects of my life is what motivates me to get up and be at the gym twice a day while making time for my studies. I want to show people that you can live a life that you love and you are capable of anything if you just want it bad enough. Hard work and discipline go hand in hand.  Never let anyone tell you that you cant do something or that your goals are not attainable, because while they might know the odds, they do not know you :)
