Sophie Blackhall: Modern Message in a Bottle

Sophie Blackhall an Australian based in Brooklyn illustrated around 20 books fro children, had many exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne and moved to New York where is currently living.

I think her work is amazing and funny. She is a great storyteller and illustrator. Her project Missed Connection is full of happy, sad, philosophical illustrated messages which as I think reflected bitter sweatness of real life.

Take a look at her pictures from her project called  MissedConnectionsNY blog  where she illustrates anonymous messages posted online.

Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I’m trying to pin a few of them down.
