Sophie Blackall | Brooklyn Based Illustrator
Brooklyn-based illustrator Sophie Blackall was in search of inspiration when she stumbled upon the infamous Missed Connections section of Craigslist. In this Internet realm of love lost and found, anonymous posters chronicle the one who got away, hoping that the object of their affection will remember the shy stranger who offered an umbrella during a freak hail storm. Sophie immediately knew she had found her muse. That fateful revelation led to a collection of tender works, culminating in her recently published book, Missed Connections: Love, Lost & Found.
