Sophie Blackall is a Brooklyn-based Australian artist who has illustrated over twenty books for children, including the Ezra Jack Keats Award–winning Ruby’s Wish. Blackall’s first book for adults, Missed Connections: Love, Lost & Found (Workman Publishing, October 2011), began as a blog in early 2009 and continues today as a series of paintings based on actual anonymous messages posted online by lovelorn strangers. Her editorial illustrations have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post, and her poster commissioned by the New York City MTA Arts for Transit program is currently on view in subway trains throughout the city.
