Missed connections

Sometimes I feel like I am a total dud at finding things on the internet. There must be a world just out of my grasp full of all these beautiful inspiring things to discover, and then I realise all I am reading is celebrity gossip, and even worse than that I don't even know the celebrities anymore.

And then you hit upon a vein of gold and suddenly the world is alive. I found Catherine Campbell's beautiful illustrations and drawings through the Design Files. And then through her I found Sophie Blackall. And it all got me thinking. 

Thinking about so many things and pens and inks and past lives and one time when someone gave me the whale eye on the L train and it ended up in the missed connections section. Ah those were the days.
