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.

Duncan Hoole

Hi there, my name is Duncan Hoole, I'm an aspiring MTB athlete from Cape Town, South Africa currently racing in my 3rd year as an U/23 MTB rider proudly supported by Drip Drop SA and Cycle Teknix.

The journey all began one afternoon in 2014 when I decided to dust off my bike that was originally hanging up in the garage. I’ve always been a sporty person, taking part in various different sport disciplines during my school days, but never found my true love for any sport until I got back onto my bike.

I started off racing Half Marathons in 2015 and managed to achieve my goals of achieving top 10 finishers and multiple age group podium spots in 2016. This year, I decided to take the leap to Marathon and Stage Racing which so far has been a difficult adjustment not getting the results I'm training for...

We are currently in the 2nd half of the season, I'm feeling a lot better than I did in the first half. I've got a few big races left this year, with the biggest race being the Double Century (200km) at the end of the year, which is actually a road race...

The ultimate goal is to eventually follow into my Cousins footsteps and take part in the Cape Epic, but will first need to gain some more experience and stamina to
withstand those 8 grueling days!
