Sophie Blackall has illustrated several ‘Missed Connections’ posters that churn up the hilarity of interaction with strangers in a busy metropolis. Each one based around a fleeting encounter in NYC, bringing to surface the beauty of existing in a city with so many characters.

There’s this special love I have for public transit. The observation of behavioural dispositions or wondering up a story for each individual. Then there’s that odd time when another might strike up a pleasant conversation that shifts the weight of your day. Dare I not forget about the daydreaming single-but-flirtatiously-inhibited folk whom turn to none other but the internet to find their lost love. Sophie Blackall displays the charm in these situations with uniquely funny copy and delicate illustrations . Widely known as a children's book illustrator, her wit and light-heartedness translates well to a grown-up audience too.
