Red Book, Blue Book


Monday, September 14, 2009
Look: historically, I'm not a morning person. And to top it off, I was grimacing through some lower back pain that flowered over the weekend. So when you noticed me (white guy, brown hair, blue/white striped shirt, earphones, red book) and I noticed you (white girl, brown hair, nosering, headphones, blue book) for however brief a moment this morning, it was bolstering and made me forget the knife in my back. Haven't noticed you before, but if there's a next time, maybe I can slap myself out of the morning slumber and say hey. No promises, though.

  7. These are fantastic. You've taken these ads and given them a sweetness that one would never imagine coming from Craigslist.

  8. A friend of mine posted these on FB and they immediately caught my eye. Love the simplicity with your characters and their thoughts. I think all of us have had at different moments in our own lives very similar and that’s why your work is so relatable. I look forward to seeing more Missed Connections illustrations.
