Don't you love reading the Missed Connections section of Craigslist and wonder about the people behind these short bursts of passion? Yes? Well, so does Sophie Blackall, author of "Missed Connections, Love, Lost & Found". She says: "Every day hundreds of strangers fall in love on the strength of a glance, a smile or a particular hat. The moment is fleeting, and in a desperate attempt to reconnect, people post Missed Connections. I am completely obsessed with these funny, sad, strange and beautiful messages; these bizarre short stories of unrequited love. For the past two years I've been turning them into paintings for a blog, which are now collected in a book."
Here are some of the funniest, sweetest and strangest posts transformed into paintings by Sophie.
