Illustrations of Craigslist Missed Connections

Half Asian Girl

Brooklyn artist Sophie Blackall has been creating some wonderful illustrations from Craigslist Missed Connections. Prints are available in Sophie’s Etsy store.

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.
