Geometric Kate Bush using Adobe Illustrator


Back in 2016, when I was on a summer break from university, I decided to try and expand my Adobe Illustrator skills. YouTube has been a great source of information for sewing for me, so I decided to search what Illustrator videos were on there and came across this one to create a geometric picture.

I just sat in front of the TV with my laptop and played about with a Kate Bush photograph that I got from google. I didn’t intend to spend so much time on it and make it so detailed, it just kind of went that way. I wanted it to be more blocky from the outer edges and make her face more detailed. I love how it turned out and got a massive print out of it to frame and put on a wall at home.

Do you have Illustrator? Have you followed this tutorial? I’d love to see what you’ve created! Please post below any artwork you have created, or any tutorials you swear by =)

Hello, and welcome to my blog


Hi, my name is Kate and as my ‘About Me‘ page explains, I have always been a creative person, my main focus being fashion and costume. I really enjoy experimenting with different mediums, and have also dabbled with jewellery making and leatherwork.

Over the next few weeks, I will share previous work that I have created. I am also planning to write about costume on film, especially with the final series of Game of Thrones starting next week! On top of this, I am planning to try out various patterns and write about how I find them, as well as any other creative endeavours.

I hope you enjoy my little creative outlet on the internet.

Kate xx
