Love is in the small things. And Los Angeles-based artist Amanda Oleander captures these cute couple moments in her illustrations. Drawing inspiration from her own romantic relationship and collecting memories from people close to her, Amanda perfectly shows in her relationship comics what love looks like when no one's watching.
Amanda is currently dating Joey Rudman. "[He] ends up drawn in most of my adult cartoons," she told Bored Panda. "We have been together for almost three years. He's the sweetest man I've ever met." The artist describes the bond between them as pure magic. "Before I met Joey if anyone told me their love and relationship was like ours I wouldn't believe it. It's nothing less than amazing. We can't get enough of each other."
"I'm enthralled by the way people behave behind closed doors, intimate moments with their significant others we never get to see. Those are moments that can’t be documented because if they were, it would alter the way the person behaved. So I draw them."
Oleander claims that each of her cute cartoons is inspired by a different concept. "I do wish that viewers take with them a sense of confidence and appreciation for the simple moments in life."
