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.

Zibele Makolo

I'm Zibele Makolo, a 20 year old model/stylist and a creative director. I grew up here in Cape Town, I liked fashion since I was a little kid. When I was doing my matric I started doing shoots and stuff, I directed everything because I like creating new things, I like coming up with new ideas and implementing them.

Since then I've been collaborating with people and also doing my own shoots to show my creativity to the world and inspire people. Every shoot I'm doing has a meaning to it, I don't just wake up in the morning and decide to do a shoot. I plan everything first then look for the equipment I will need for the shoot also look for the clothes suitable for the shoot. Then find a photographer who I'm sure she/he will be willing to give me what I want. 

As a person you need to challenge yourself by trying new things just to show how creative you are, and how comfortable/confident you are with your style and be able to work with other people so that you will improve and learn new things as an artist.
