Missed connections

Have you ever locked eyes with someone, or had a friendly conversation, and afterwards you wished you had gotten their name and number? This blog uses posts found on Missed Connections websites, and turns them into gorgeous illustrations.
The artist, Sophie Blackall, describes her project like this:
'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.'
You can buy the Missed Connection illustrations as prints in Sophie's Etsy shop, here.
