{ art i heart: "missed connections" by sophie blackall }


I'm loving these illustrations by artist Sophie Blackall.

You Had a Guitar

Cursive


Each is inspired by a real life missed connection gleaned from posts on sites such as Craigslist. For the full story behind each work of art, be sure to stop by the delightful Missed Connections blog--scrumptious weekend reading.

P.S. Thank you to all of the readers (both new + old) who stopped by this week...I truly appreciate you taking the time to visit and share your lovely comments. For those of you new to S.HOPtalk, I look forward to getting to know you better! Have a wonderful weekend lovelies!
