The New York Times recently profiled Sophie Blackall, a Brooklyn-based illustrator who has turned the musings of Craigslist’s Missed Connections into an art form.

Blackall is a children’s book illustrator that has used Missed Connections posts – ripe with the humor, longing and romance of classic “what if” moments, as the source of inspiration for her illustrations.  Using Chinese ink and watercolor to create them, she posts the illustrations to her blog and sells them on Etsy. Blackall’s work has also caught the eye of publishers – and could be in book stores within the next 18 months.
