I’m Shazleen, an Illustrator based in London. I’m a graduate from Middlesex University and  a member of the Drawn Chorus Collective. I’ve been self publishing comics since the age of 16 and work mainly with Narrative Illustration.

For me, Illustration is a means to communicate difficult topics; in particular, I’m concerned with themes of identity politics, diaspora and interpersonal relationships.

While I specialize in narrative based work, I’m always looking for exciting new projects to work on. Feel free to contact me if you’d think we could work well together!
