Inspiring artists

I am so inspired by Sophie Blackall! She is an illustrator/artist living in New York. She has a few blogs and websites: her blog, Missed Connections, her website, and her shop. I especially love her 'Missed Connections' series. She looks on craigslist for some interesting missed connections, then illustrates them. Sometimes when I'm tired of news and disasters and all of the sad happenings in the world, I'll read the personals. Where else does one paragraph have the potential to change your life? And how often are we required to sum up ourselves in so few words?
