I Wish I Could See Inside Your Head

Monday, November 23, 2009

You were wearing a green dress with white buttons. We made eye contact at least three times on the 6 train this morning. All of a sudden you gave a little smile, and looked down at your lap, as though at some secret joke. You never looked up again and I had to get off at Bleeker. I wish I could have seen inside your beautiful head.

  1. Somewhere there is a green dress with white buttons hanging in someone's closet, and simultaneously hanging in someone's mind. i love how he called her head "beautiful"! Thanks again for the lovely illustration... the bed is so simple, and sweet.

  3. I love your blog. Great concept...I should be the cynic and post all the people I meet briefly and don't want to remember. The person who cuts me off in traffic, the rude cashier at the bank. Maybe not, writing about them would defeat the idea of not remembering them. Cute post.

  5. I'd like to think I can see past what a person looks like on the outside, but a see-thru head? That would take some work.

  6. This is brilliant, Sophie!

    I love the story within the story.

    Seeing the woman's insides as well as her "thoughts" is such a cool concept and you managed to pull it off beautifully!

  7. Fantastic illustration. I love the anatomical cross-section; it's gorgeous.

    Part of me feels like the woman could've been a transsexual. You know, looking down at the secret in her lap... Hrm...

  11. Your blog is amazing! Someone sent me the link because I recently wrote a song about a missed connection (called "Lovers Lane Station/CVS Shoplifter"). Your art brings these messages another dimension, I love it. I hope you don't mind, but I linked to it on my blog, and posted one of your pictures next to the link. If you prefer I remove it, I can-- but I have already had friends tell me they love your work.

  14. So beautiful and thoughtful. I fell in love with your blog.

  15. I love this idea, your whole conception of creating missed connections visually. I, too, have a fascination with missed connections and while I like to think they happen to me every so often, I've found myself wishing I had spoken up in situations that don't necessarily involve an attraction, and I recently started to catalogue my own missed connections here: dailymissedconnections.blogspot.com. If you are ever in need of fodder that is a bit different from craigslist...

  19. Joy! I'm so happy to have discovered this space. I am moved by the little paragraph that you put in the sidebar. It's a very New York kind of thing. Here in the midwest... well, it's complex. Your illustrations rivet my attention. When Santa delivers some money, I'll visit your shop. Your sense of narration is very good.
