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…

Kutloano Tshabalala


True Story, in High School my friends and I delivered a public speaking speech about masturbation...in the light of Independence... now that I’ve got your attention...


I am Kutloano Tshabalala, also known as Astero Red (IG: astero_red). I am a designer and model ,also a victim who suffers from an Adidas addiction. Don’t be too alarmed by this, my addiction is being treated!

I love the idea of self expression through different forms of art, in this, I fell in love with drawing and started exploring and expressing myself through fashion and just being fearless and bold in my art and fashion sense. The ability to communicate and provoke emotion through clothing or paper. My love for fashion lead me towards modelling and photography.

The influential people I surround myself with make me desire to reflect the confidence, efficiency and humility I am exposed to, through hard work and consistency.

- Part time Model.
- Graphic Designer.
- Life Ethusiast.

Who recently fell in love with exercise again, so It is safe to say I spend a lot of my time in the gym.

I one day dream of living closer to the ocean, the waves are extremely soothing and calm down any turmoil within. I just love water, drinking it, sitting in it, watching it drip. It calms me down and reminds me of the purity of life, in this fast paced digital world.

Hip Hop culture paved the path to my free expression and this is seen through my art (https://www.behance.net/kutloanotshabalala), my style won’t let you miss it.

My career remains undefined.

- I am a creative,
- Forever changing,
- Forever evolving.

Hungry to explore different mediums... unable to be defined as “to define is to limit”.

Most of my hommies/photographers allow me to be the fashionista I fancy myself to be, and contributed to my growth as a model , @kg_dynamic, @cindyleahcashmere, @shadetoodark. Most of my friends are photographers which is extremely radical for a model that wishes to be expressive through self styling.We always collaborate and create art. That’s how my modelling career path began.

I’m gonna be that guy, and quote the Adidas slogan but honestly guys, “Impossible is nothing”. This line keeps me aiming for goals that are way beyond my reach. This is how I know, I am on the right track. Thank you Creators Club for this opportunity, I will not stop until I am remarkable, as a human being first, before anything else.
