Brooklyn based artist Sophie Blackall‘s Missed Connections project is an ongoing series based on real messages posted online by lovelorn strangers. I could spend the entire day reading these anonymous postings through the eyes of Sophie’s Chinese ink and water color illustrations. Some are sweet, some are funny and some are sad, but mostly they are hopeful . . . and make us hopeful for someone’s second chance at love!
