Sophie Blackall

I love watching short (or long) documentaries of everyday people either doing something extraordinary, or just living their day to day lives. Especially when it documents what they do for a living. And especially if what they do for a living somehow involves art.

Sophie Blackall is an illustrator living in NY, known for her series inspired by Craigslist’s “Missed Connections” section.

Recently she did a piece for the NY Subway system and Etsy.com made this short film about her and her work. I found it very inspiring and a welcome way to start off my day.
