Sophie Blackall has an amazing series of illustrations in her Missed Connections project. She takes “missed connections” classified ads and visually represents them through her enchanting illustrations. From her blog: “Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections websites. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I’m trying to pin a few of them down.” She also offers prints of her illustrations in her Etsy shop.
