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…

Where are you in life right now?

Lol I had to repeat that question to myself a couple of times before actually answering it, like ...ehm...

Well my name is Lisa Magwebu, a fine young lady from Cape Town. It feels as though it was yesterday when i said my goodbyes to the only place I call home. In pursuit of a better career opportunity granted to me four years ago, where I jetted off to a country I knew nothing about.
Ever since then, I have been living in Jeddah, KSA (Middle East) working as an International Cabin crew.

It is an amazing experience working with multi-nationalities and traveling to places I have only dreamt of. Who would have thought that I would travel the world, have breakfast in Paris and wonder off in the City that never sleeps, New York City baby yeah! I honestly don't regret seizing this once in a lifetime opportunity.   

Being the ambitious individual that I am, I solely started an online hair company called @Boss_chichair. I love everything to do with Beauty but I am more passionate and skilled in the hair department. I am also a wig maker so if you are having too many of those bad hair days, hit me up sis lol.

I've been doing freelance modelling on the side as-well, basically I try to have a finger in every pie.

What inspires me in life are people who built their empires from the ground up. I get motivated by rags to riches stories, basically by anyone brave enough to change their situation, anyone that had nothing but today their living the dream. It only proves to me that nothing is written in stone and it is never too late to change your life around. The unfortunate situations you might be facing today does not determine your future. If you work hard enough, apply your mind and soul, you can achieve anything. 

In the future I see myself being my own boss. A successful multi-business owner, creating opportunities for others. 

My favourite inspirational quote: "Always aim for the moon, if you miss you might hit a star"! It keeps me pushing everyday.
