I just wanted to say thank you for offering to help carry my little orangey/pink suitcase. It really meant a lot because I was having a really terrible day.

  12. impossibly delicate. you've made something intangible, memorable.
    I wrote up a MC a little while a go...(this is what I wrote)

    from your smile; soft spoken, kind, warm,weak in the knees, humble, handsome, curious, want to go for a walk about...
    all this from your ethereal smile..
    you;cuffed light denim, teal hued t-shirt, beard, sneakers, impossibly cute smile
    me;asian, buddy holly-esque specs, white repetto-type flats..wanting to share a friendly hip check with you.
    talk soon.

    His friend saw it and we've been connecting every since.
    both our birthdays are coming up..you think you could share your talents with us and create a little soemthing something?

  13. Hi Sophie,

    I got directed her through the drawn.ca website. Really interesting work. I love your drawings!

    I've been down in a slump of sorts as to what to draw and what not... and your blog inspired me to do something similar. I live in LA so I figured there's some pretty interesting stories there too. I'll mention your site in my blog to give you credit and so that other people can see your work too. Thanks.

  16. missed connections has long been a passion of mine. one that i think, all the time, about turning into something, but, instead, i just read. and watch. and now find this. or, rather, a friend found it. and sent it to me. and i would like to tell you how wonderful it is. i'd also love to get more updates. can you tell me how? caleb@lacocinasf.org

  26. Hello : My name is Cristian Parodi, Director of Moosgo (www.moosgo.com). I would like to discuss the following with you:

    I have learned about your work through a NYT article. Our company deals with turning beautiful and original art—just like yours—into applications for iPhone and iPod Touch for all users of these devices to be able to enjoy cool and original art “on the go”.

    I would like to develop applications with your illustrations to spread and market them through the iTunes APP Store. Our work plan is very simple and practical: we are responsible for developing the application with your illustrations (we could even include texts to complement your work, as well as photos, videos and accesses to your blog, youtube, etc.).

    If you need more information or more details about our proposal, please feel free to contact me at cristian@moosgo.com

    Thank you very much for your time and I will be expecting hearing from you.

    Best !

  33. Sophie!

    I love that billowy hair and the green of her dress!

    She almost appears to be floating or emerging from some type of cloudy abyss.

    So clever and so damn cool!

  38. your best friend’s wedding. one shoulder wedding dresses You may also choose to place columns with floral dispays on each side of wedding dresses the altar or if your vases are tall enough they can be placed directly on the ground. beach wedding dresses Rose petals for the aisle also look beautiful in an outdoor setting. bridal wedding gowns These can be placed before the wedding or placed by the flower girl as red wedding dresses
