Sophie Blackall’s Illustrations of Craigslist Missed Connections

This episode of Etsy’s Handmade Portraits series, directed by Alex Rappoport, profiles an artist who finds inspiration in the stories of strangers trying to find one another on the Internet after a chance encounter. Sophie Blackall’s whimsical paintings illustrate Craigslist’s Missed Connections posts in humorous ways, perhaps interpreting their details more literally than the authors intended. Her illustrations have been published as a book and are available on Etsy, of course.
