We were hugely impressed by the illustrative talent on show at Middlesex University's School of Art and Design grad show last night.

Walking through London's Old Truman Brewery, the work of more than 500 students was on display – everything from animation to fine art. The event has been organised in conjunction with Free Range, and is open to the public from today until Monday.

Here we feature the striking, bold and bizarre work of five illustration students that caught our eye, including Shazleen Khan’s diverse range of comics, Yurina Shimoju’s joyful and heartbreaking narratives, Molly Howard Foster’s popping risograph prints and Magda Kacalak’s scenes based on H. Murakami novels.

Last month we spoke to BA (Hons) illustration programme leader at Middlesex University Nancy Slonims about how to nail your grad show.

Shazleen Khan

Shazleen works primarily in narrative illustration, but her variation in style is impressive.

This is a sketchbook Zine, based on statues displayed at the British Museum.
