Missed connection

In the Missed Connections section on Craigslist, people try reconnect with strangers they shared a moment with on the street (or subway or elevator). Artist Sophie Blackall has been illustrating them for almost a year. This one from New Year's Eve made me smile.

P.S. Sophie also has an etsy shop.

This is so adorable!

Litanie des Saints said...

Here in Athens, Greece, there is a free-press newspaper with a column titled 'I saw you', which works exactly the same way! The column has been so successful, that a couple of years ago there was a TV series with stories based on that idea! :-)

p.s. I love your blog. Congratulations for the baby!

We're on the same wavelength today! I've been inspired recently by these interactions and posted this about chance encounters or "the meet-cute." http://lavieboston.com/2010/01/03/the-meet-cute/

More than cute, spot on with smiles! Happy New Year!

i love love love this! my friend uses these missed connections to write stories and they're amazing!

jenna @sweet fine day said...

Oh, I remember the back pages of the Village Voice way back when people would take out classified ads to find missed connections. I'd skim the pages once in a while just in case there was one for me, haha.

Jessica (Hey Lola) said...

Oh, this is amazing! I'm so glad you posted it!

Barefoot Chic said...

What a an adorable artwork!!! I love reading missed connection - some people on there are simply romantic, some are weird and desperate and some are plain funny. Beautiful illustration!!

Thank you for sharing this! What an amazing idea and she is so talented!

Laurie Jones said...

What a brilliant idea!! How sweet!

Chessa! said...

I adore this illustration and the idea behind it. I always wonder if people meet up through missed connections. I recently encouraged a friend to post something there when she was too shy to talk to a stranger on the L train. sigh...

Dizzy Miss Lissy said...

Oh my goodness what a charming idea! I really hope this illustrator is illustrating books, as well.. if not, well, she ought to be!

Aww, my mom posted in the Missed Connection section once! I thought it was so sweet that she cared enough to try to find the mystery man who shared a lingering smile with her at the store :)
