I am trying to recreate this icon in a vector format.

enter image description here

I thought I might find a similar icon on the web which I could simply modify, but have not found anything close enough.

I tried to do a trace in Illustrator but I just got a blob.

Can someone assist me?

  • You did a much better job than I did. Thank you very much. I am guessing you have a graphics tablet, whereas I am using a mouse...or, you just have a steadier hand.

I'd recommend drawing those blobby shapes with the pen tool. The outer circle should be made just with the ellipse tool. You can expand that and merge everything to create one shape.
