  2. I just watched the video on Etsy and immediately sent the link to some friends with whom I exchange ATCs monthly. Our theme in February is "missed opportunities." What lovely inspiration, and a delightful video. I love your artwork and the way you talk about your art. Cheers!

  3. I have loved your drawings and I was delighted to see your video, I often wonder about the ppl on subways, on buses,on the sidewalks...I wonder about their lives and what have brought them there...

  8. dear sophie,
    i was on the subway the other day heading back from the upper west side to roosevelt island where i live. i was utterly and entirely captivated by your work titled "missed connections." it is beautiful, and captures so very well the spirit of the city and its residents. i'm a fan.

    best,

  9. Dear Sophie,

    I'm from Hong Kong...I forgot how I stumbled onto your site. All I know is that I'm in love with your characters, and I'm glad that I will be in New York later this year...I'm looking forward to looking for your book... in a bookstore.
    I've always believed it takes lots of guts to be an artist : ) Good luck!

  13. My daughters are enjoying the Ivy and Bean books right now, so when I saw your poster on the subway I recognized your style right away. Of course I wished there was a little nod to Ivy or Bean in there somewhere... (maybe there is?) Congratulations and continued success!

  15. My friend sent me your book for my birthday since I had a MC happen to me (and because I love Brookline Booksmith, where she bought the book, and miss it dearly living in Chicago now!).

    This was in the Chicago Reader, fell off my chair when I realized it was for me --
    "HOB, The Virginia Coalition Show. You: tall, exotic woman with great sense of humor, in a long leopard print coat that night. I was the drunk white law student. Should have gone with you and your friends to dance club after show. Let's hook up soon. Get in touch."
    (HOB is House of Blues)

    While I LOVE your illustrations, I found myself most intrigued by your introduction. Resonated with me on so may levels, but especially the "If you like doing something, find a way to call it work."

    I've been self-employed for seven years, making a living doing ridiculous things (i.e. as a way to challenge themselves and meet new people, 40 bad-dancers/bad-improvisers, who ssign up alone, work with a dance/improv teacher over three months and then perform at in front of 700 at one of Chicago's most revered theaters).

    The do what you love-lifestyle is an absolute blessing! Thanks for putting it so eloquently.

  36. On my way home from work this evening I rode the subway to Brooklyn, as I have been doing most every evening for the past six months. I have eyed this work curiously on many winter morning, rejoicing at the colorful personalities scattered along the subway bench.
    Only this spring though, this day, and on this evening did a little boy suddenly sprout a canine tail, after seemingly dropping a ball, returned to him by the yoyo movement of the new york subway.
    Then there was the poor tired woman who forgot a fish in her handbag, and dropped another on the subway floor - or not; and the frenchman's budding interest in whales contrasted with another traveler's clear passion for them.
    Well done - I spent at least thirty five minutes completed fixated on the work and didn't want to leave the subway car - lost in deep revelry.

  37. Sophie, I saw your subway poster on an M-train in New York City, and I'm writing this from Kolkata, India. My memory of the piece and its beauty has crossed the Atlantic with me, and I want to congratulate you for how breathtakingly you have captured the diversity that makes NYC such a wonderful, alive city. I hope to follow your work closely, and wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

  52. The best place to learn mandarin Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to study Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of Chinese language course and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
