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.

Currently a career man in marketing and relationship management (been in loyalty/rewards marketing for more than 7 years now) with a passion and drive for running and overall functional fitness. My wife, kids and family have always been an inspiration to my career and fitness as my career sees to taking care of them and our futures and the fitness ensures I can always enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle with them – leading by example on the latter. I really love my running – taking me anywhere, with little material requirement and maximum enjoyment in time of the day, all year long and what’s better is that it is a passion I can share with family and friends.

Aspiring to always be my kids hero and inspire them to be better people every day, I want to do amazing things and show them that nothing great comes without hard work – as my parents showed me through their life until this present day.

I continue to pursue my passion of running and fitness and taking it further each day. Being sponsored by one of the biggest brands in running, an ASICS FrontRunner this year I saw as one of many steps towards my goals; bringing together my skills of my career, enjoyment of life with my passion for fitness to get others active. Always outgoing, sociable and engaging is what I enjoy being and this has always given me the opportunities I have seen in my life and can only say many more to come, God willing. A card I received from a family friend all the way back in primary school said, “Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude”, so I push for the highs with all the positive energy!
