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."

My husband always takes my ponytail holder out when I come to bed. He enjoys the tangle I guess.

Nothing's worse than when he props himself up on his elbow to reposition, on your hair. Not all screams from the bedroom are of delight.

This is why I put my hair in a pony tail at night... Love the cuddles, hate the spitting sound he makes when trying to get my hair out of his mouth. (yeah yeah... I see it...)

I have a five month old and this one is quite true to life, down to the pumping equipment and the mess of clothes. I adore the tiny hearts floating above the parents. This is so sweet.

Cuddling is better than air-conditioning if you only have the ability to sweat at a slightly higher temperature than the cuddling-partner...

You think this is sweet, but the real story is she just used his finger to get past the lock screen and now she is going to wake him up and yell at him because a co-worker emailed him with a question and the co-worker is a girl. This fight will last all day until he says sorry and erases the co-worker as a contact. She will bring this up again at a later date.
