"I've been here twelve years and feel like I've barely scratched the surface," says Sophie Blackall, a New York-based illustrator who has recently achieved fame through her book, "Missed Connections: Love Lost & Found." In it, Blackall depicts real Craigslist "missed connections" from lovelorn city dwellers searching for a mate.

In one illustration seen in the video above, a couple is drawn wearing curious outfits. The guy is in a furry bear costume and the girl wears the head, complete with a tiny smirk at the corner of its snout. The title: "We shared a bear suit at an apartment party Saturday night." All we're asking is: who wouldn't respond to such an ad?

Let us know what you think of the video interview with the artist in the comments section below.
