Missed Connections Art By Sophie Blackall

Admit it. From time to time, you browse Craigslist’s Missed Connections, secretly hoping that you’ll recognize a description and realize you are the “girl on the A train.” What could be more romantic than someone experiencing love at first sight? Artist Sophie Blackall brings these moments to life. Using striking “New York Missed Connections” posts, she creates whimsical and colorful illustrations based on the words and scenario. Some are poignant—in one, a waitress at a diner stares longingly at a boy drinking a strawberry milkshake along with the script, “I bought you that milkshake, you just didn’t realize it.” Others are hilarious, like the man looking for a hipster chick who passed gas: “You passed wind rather loudly and started chuckling. I’d like to see you again. The flatulence wasn’t a turn-off.” Check out the fun blog, or purchase a print on Etsy. You never know … you might find something familiar. [Missed Connections]
