By Janine Saunders, November 18th, 2009

Illustrator Sophie Blackall has read thousands of missed connections posts. A self confessed addict of these intimate, fleeting moments described in haste and posted in public, she trawls through them daily to find the most visual, humorous, lyrical or wierd confessions or pleas, before creating a similarly spontaneous illustration she then posts to her blog. We talk to Sophie about the significance of shared moments between strangers, and create the moments that might have been.

  • I absolutely love the concept AND your illustrations. Your illustrations remind me of the illustrations of Eloise Wilkin I loved in Little Golden Books.
