Missed Connections

I've been discovering new and interesting blogs every day, and I love taking the time to read through older posts. It's how I've discovered still more blogs to read, and it has introduced me to so many interesting, amazing artists. Reading through Jayme McGowan's Roadside Projects this morning (and you should definitely check out her incredible work at her etsy store here), I came across the work of Brooklyn-based illustrator Sophie Blackall, and her fantastic blog Missed Connections. As she explains about the work, "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 wore an awesome color changing dress to the BBQ on Skillman Ave in Williamsburg, but someone spilled wine on it.You left too quickly...I'd like to see you again.

If not for your noisy Tambourine, I would not have seen you.Your green skirt looked terrible, but that leather jacket makes you look just right.
I was the attractive guy sitting to your left just before you got off.

Remember? Uptown A train. Sunday at around 9pm. I was the black dude reading Bukowski's Post Office. You were reading the Arts and Leisure section. You passed wind rather loudly and started chuckling. I'd like to see you again. The flatulence wasn't a turn-off.
