About me
Tyrell Osborne BA (Hons) Illustration I have developed a wide variety of skills as an illustrator during my time at Middlesex University. I have explored many themes and subject matter both deeply personal and for a commercial brief. My work has included protest posters for recent political and global events, such as the riots in Hong Kong and Australian Bush Fires, a graphic novel, illustrated biography, film posters, intimate family portraits and a Panoramic narrative. I have also created and illustrated stories based on historical events such as The Adventure of Atahualpa and the last Inca Empire. From as early as I can remember, I was drawing, making up stories and characters. Illustration was already a driving force. I have continued to add to my Illustration skills, both digital and traditional, challenging myself to keep improving, whether the subject is a narrative, character or theme. I am confident with pen & ink as well as digital modelling and have gained skills in printmaking, life drawing and visual storytelling. I am detail oriented and enjoy researching themes. I am resilient, professional and hardworking and am very much looking forward to showcasing my talent in a career in the Illustrative Arts. Email. tyrelljosborne@gmail.com
Projects
  • Final major project, Memories of a MotherThis final major project was used for me to celebrate and put a light on my amazing mother, who raised two boy's as a single mother, supported us through our education and continued to cheer us on for a decade as her health, sadly continued to diminish until passing away last year. I knew from the beginning of my final year I wanted to do a project to commemorate my mum, and how her passing has also affected me. I decided to do a mix of graphic novels, posters and panoramic to honour her memory.
