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…

Hi there, internet! Sarah Jay here. 

I'm a qualified pastry chef, bakery owner, and YouTuber, born and raised in the small town of Port Elizabeth. I also raise cats, lots and lots of cats. 

I have been the stereotypical art and drama kid my whole life, so I self taught myself how to decorate cakes, work a camera, and voila! Here we are today.  My life sounds quite organised there, but really, I'm just 22 and winging it. Honesty is my policy, hahaha.

Youtube has opened up so many doors for me, and I've rediscovered the passion I have for entertaining people. My ultimate goal would be to take this on as my full time job. My channel is pretty much a diary filled with my thoughts, embarrassing stories, happy memories, and terrible Dota 2 gaming vlogs (I'm getting there though). I also aim to bring awareness to mental health issues and animal cruelty, two things that impact my life on a daily basis. If you're keen to take a look at my crazy story, you can find my channel under Sarah Jay.  

Onto the cakes! I've been baking professionally for four years now. By now, I constantly smell like fresh cake and I'm not even complaining. I like to test myself when it comes to fondant work, and hopefully one day I can take Cake Boss head on. Life goals, right? 

Now for the cats. If you had to look up "cat lady" in the dictionary, my face would be proudly displayed next to that definition. Right now my cat collection is sitting on 5. About a month ago, I fostered my first two kittens, and let's just say... they never left. I've been actively involved in animal anti cruelty for years now, I always tell everyone that my perfect retirement looks like a farm with cats and dogs as far as the eye can see. There's no love like pet love! 

As I always end my videos off: I hope that YOU have the best day ever, and I hope to see you soon!
