I’m Shazleen and I’m an Illustrator, Writer and Designer based in London. I specialize in narrative work aimed at Adult and YA audiences and my comics have been published by 404 Ink and Sweatdrop Studios. My comics and illustrations have previously appeared in Time Out, Poetry News and Neo Magazine.


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

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!
