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."

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.

Nope this is wrong. The dog always is in the middle so I can't touch my wife.

Absolutely. And the little shit will scoot hubby to the EDGE of the bed to prevent him from being able to touch me. We think it's funny, she's 14 now and we're making sure she's as happy as she can possibly be the rest of the time we get to have with her. (She's healthy. But 14 is a little old lady dog.)

Mine is so jealous that she needs to be in between us and if that doesn’t work she continuously licks my husbands face or balding head until he moves 😝

We sleep with one possessive cat who is in love with my husband and one overweighted diva cat that believes that our bed is her property

Except the dog goes between the people on the bed, and takes up the majority of space

My dog likes his place in the middle of the bed. We have to fit ourselves around him.

It's warmer there. Lol. My dog takes up 90% of the bed so this is how we always sleep.

This was obviously drawn by the dog. It's a conspiracy to gain our trust.
