My favorite missed connection
I have a secret crush on Sophie Blackall. She does these wonderfully quirky artworks, which feature messages she found in the missed connection ads. The pictures make me feel like i have slipped into a beautifully crafted children's book where all of the characters are unique and lovely and a little bit peculiar. I wish i could live inside one of these pictures.
I love the missed connection ads in the paper. It is so hopelessly and tragically romantic. I dream of reading about myself in the missed connection ads and knowing i'd made someone's day through a look or a smile, or something quaint i said.
You can but prints at Sophie's etsy store... If i had money i'd buy them all.
