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…

Amanda Maphumulo ~ Naenda

I'm the next President!!

Haha, where does one even start? 

I'm a visionary, a dreamer & "a stalker of success", I often call myself an alien because even I can't fathom how my mind works.

I've dealt with things that could break most people, now that I'm finally starting to find my voice in this world I honestly feel like I owe it to myself to be nothing but great, extraordinary & absolutely beautiful (inside & outside). My main focus is hard work & self-worth.

I am Amanda Maphumulo but most know me as Naenda (I've decided to go by Amanda because most can't pronounce the name Naenda, they just like how foreign it sounds😣 )

I am currently doing my last year in Varsity College at 19 years old & I'm doing a Diploma in Business Management & Entrepreneurship, yes I know lol. How?? Well it's a long story. 

I'm just glad it's my last year because now I get to do what I really love - EVERYTHING MEDIA. I'm a creative, I love telling stories & I love listening to them. I'm a host (events) / radio personality / TV host / a business woman / I might just take your job. 😂

Basically you'll see me everywhere you go in SA, just give me a few months. Well that's before I take over in the US too. I'm a lover of cars. I'd die for a G63. I love fashion, dressing up & looking fly. Which reminds me, can anybody put in a good word for me at Topshop?? I'll be a great ambassador don't you guys think??

I value honesty, respect & I vibe with anybody who has a dream that most people doubt because it's "impossible". Tell me about your dreams, how you plan on taking over & how you going to use your power to influence the world. 

My motto is : "Never entertain anything MUNDANE!!" - which simply means don't entertain small things, never dream just so you can afford a G-WAGON, your dreams must afford you G-WAGONS!! There is no room for mediocrity!! And to all my visionaries : SEE YOU AT THE TOP!! ❤
