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 24 years old, doing my honours in law this year.  

Despite me completing it this year I plan to do things much differently than most law students who end up doing articles.

I have been in the South African squad for karate and eventually branched off into mixed martial arts which I plan on taking up again after my honours this year.

I plan on being in the business world and after gaining all the knowledge I need will look at starting a business of my own with my partner who is currently doing his degree in architecture.

I have also realised that one should never let your circumstances be the reason you don't aspire to do something in life and that there is always someone worse off than you who is working even harder than you are. 

I plan on making decisions in the next 5 years of my life which will be questionable amongst my peers as I believe in taking risks and reaping the benefits when I'm much older. I'm willing to sacrifice the glamorous lifestyle for now in order to achieve an end goal.

On that note I have my goals, all set out and I believe in the saying your actions speak louder than words. 

With that being said after my honours is where my life officially begins, and it won't be the last time Cape Town will hear my name.
