Missed Connections, illustrated by Sophie Blackall

sophie.RubysWishcoverI just discovered Sophie Blackall’s Missed Connections project via a Facebook posting from Chronicle Books, who recently published a children’s book, Ruby’s Wish, which Blackall illustrated. On her Missed Connections blog, Blackall provides uniquely imaginative visual translations of a selection of those addictive Craigslist postings in which someone loses contact with someone else for some reason or other. Sometimes endearing, occasionally heartbreaking, the messages Blackall transmits are always vividly touching. Plus, many include book references. 🙂

The illustrations below are all graciously borrowed from Blackall’s blog HERE, where many more great illustrative interpretations await you!

(Incidentally, many of these illustrations are also available for purchase as prints in Blackall’s very own Etsy shop HERE!)
