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 19-year old student, studying in the field of Accounting. I have a MASSIVE passion for fashion and music. My goal in life is to pursue a career in Fashion Design as well as Interior Design. After realising my strength in numbers and finance, I have decided to what I’m currently busy with; thereafter, I would like to make my Fashion dream a reality. I look up to my favourite music artist/producer, Martin Garrix. He keeps reminding me to work harder than the next person and never to give up on a dream, because at some point you will pursue. I look forward to living a double-life in Accounting and Finance, as well as become a big part of the Fashion Industry. Not only do I want to be successful in my career, but in life itself – I hope to adopt a baby someday and live the life of a single-parent to show the world that dad’s too can be a strong independent parent.  I am one of the most ambitious people on this planet and have dreams that have masses much larger than what I can handle! The most important things in my life are my friends and family; the things I would do for them are indescribable. As my role model would say: I want to show everyone that if you can pursue your dreams, they can come true no matter what. That is what I want to do. You do not need to be great to start, but you need to start to be great.
