New Yorker Sophie Blackall, who creates marvelous illustrations for Children’s books, has been using her artistic skill to transform text-based classified ads into modern art.

Her whimsical watercolor images depict the emotion behind words written in Missed Connections columns. She is successfully able to capture fleeting moments through her visual interpretations.

Blackall’s work has also captured the attention of publishers who would like to see her art released in book form. You can find Sophie Blackall’s Missed Connections at Etsy.
