Oh boy! I heart reading missed connection ads! Well… the funny ones, not the creepy ones.
Artist Sophie Blackall is well known for illustrating children’s books, especially the wonderful series Ivy + Bean, by Annie Barrows. However a few years back she decided she wanted to balance this with some personal work, something a bit more grown up. So she started illustrating missed connection ads, that she found mostly on craigslist. She is so good at picking the most endearingly awkward ads and spinning them into gold!
