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'm a proudly Zimbabwean, Stellenbosch University graduate that has been in the modelling industry for 6 years. I have been so blessed to have featured in dozens of local and international Tv commercials and campaigns, from Pepsi to Malibu Rum, WeChat and Mweb. Fashion and beauty brands include Levi's Jeans, Nivea, C&A Germany and Exclamation Perfume.
The print publications I have featured in range from SA Sports Illustrated, to Seventeen Magazine, HUFF and 708 Magazine in the US, and a cover for Parade Magazine in Zimbabwe, to name just a few. 

In 2016 I branched out into Tv presenting for Spice tv which airs in the UK & Nigeria, covering red carpet interviews with the country's hottest designers and celebs at SA FASHION week and SA Menswear Week. 

It felt like a natural progression into fashion blogging this year, as a way to share with my followers my style & beauty tips, and how to wear the latest fashion trends - without breaking the bank! We need to stop buying the hype that you have to wear Loubitins and other such labels to look good!

With regards to my downtime, I'm very much a 'home body', and in my spare time I like to relax at home with my family and friends, enjoy good food and have a laugh. (Side note: the way to my heart is with food! So if you're a fellow foodie you are all good in my books) 

At the end of the day I just want to be to be a positive role model to the youth in my country back home, showing them that with an education, a dream and honest hard work you can really be anything - as cheesy and cliché as it may sound.
