PORTRAITS OF THE FUTURE, 2013
A collection of portraits from around the world, digitally painted into a science fiction universe, crafted into a handmade book.

When my professor asked our class 'What do you love?', my immediate response was "I love science fiction." And I love portraiture. After discovering the work of George Catlin, I realized I needed to make a series of portraits. And they needed to have a science fiction theme. After completing my last kickstarter project, I knew the best way to do this was to return to Kickstarter. Kickstarter is an international, culturally diverse community where I hoped to find a variety of faces and muses. This is where backers become involved. What I love about Catlin is how he started out asking to paint people and how, over time, they came to him, eventually helping him to build a gallery of over 500 works of art. His interaction with hundreds of people made his reputation.

SEXY SCIENCE, 2014
A website designed to explain scientific principles. These experiments are my illustrative response to the field of sexy science. They are not controlled.

They are here as a learning tool for those of us with brains perhaps more oriented towards the creative, or those who want a little more of a hands-on approach to science.

ABOUT
A San Francisco Bay Area native, Bonnie Kate now lives in London. Presently, she works for Lush Cosmetics as a graphic designer. Her past client list also includes JLL, Hachette Children’s Books, ASOS, ModCloth, Sea Shepherd UK, and individuals in the film and music industries.

Bonnie Kate enjoys making big, self-initiated projects and considers herself something of an entrepreneur. Her kickstarter projects have reached across the globe, from the US to Japan and from Croatia to Australia. Her projects include curating an art show about finding Paradise in London, illustrating a series of Portraits of the Future, and crafting a giant (1m tall) world map when she took a month and a half Knitting The World Together.

Her personal work operates on topics such as feminism, loneliness, the media, technology, love, education, and the wonders of the future. Most often, she demonstrates her world view through illustrations of women, whether they be Victorian aristocrats or modern icons. She uses art to express ideas and feelings for which she has no words.

She tutors design and the Adobe Creative Suite. Her students describe her as "well informed and patient", with a "bubbly personality that makes learning easier", and that her "ability to share her knowledge makes her an ideal tutor". For more information about tutoring, please email.

When she isn't illustrating and designing, you'll probably find her playing German board games, knitting a hat, or picking The Eels' 'My Beloved Monster' on the ukulele.
