matchmaker, matchmaker…

I’ve been smitten with Sophie Blackall‘s artwork ever since I discovered it recently. She illustrates missed connections – little newspaper ads posted by people seeking a stranger they had a fleeting moment with, and hope to see again.

It’s so much more romantic than facebook, and I can never help checking the comments on her site to see if she’s triggered a happy ending for someone. It has yet to happen, but given the span of the internet I’m allowed to be optimistic. Can you imagine what a story that would make for the grandkids?

Prints available at her store.
