Every relationship is different, but there are a lot of experiences that long-term couples go through that are pretty universal. After you get over that “I need to impress you” stage, relationships take a turn for the hairy, smelly, and lazy.
Los Angeles-based artist Amanda Oleander is an artist that knows a thing or two about being in love. Currently in a 3-year relationship, she told BoredPanda:
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.
While being in love is wonderful and beautiful, there are intimate moments that are funny and comical. Oleander depicts most of these “behind-the-scenes” moments in her artwork she shares on her Instagram page.

Drawing 56/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. This is when you’re single and it’s winter or you are doing long distance. . . This is inspired by me finally finishing up my laser hair removal sessions this month after about two years! I just thought back to the times I didn’t shave for a while and this idea came into my mind so I had to draw it! I wish I would have taken before and after photos of my legs and underarms. I also want to add that this is my personal experience and I completely support and think it’s amazing when women don’t care to shave if they don’t want to or feel comfortable in their skin/hair to never shave at all. I personally can say I have probably been brainwashed by society and don’t like having hair on my body so I got a lot of it permanently removed. Oh and shout out to @laseraway for being awesome. . . Just added the time lapse of this drawing to the Instagram Story. ? ———————————————— Prints and originals available on site, link in bio ? – new print drop tomorrow, if you are signed up to the newsletter you’ll get an email ?

Drawing 48/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. The books in these drawing are where @joeyrudman and I started in a way. He studied at @thesecondcity before getting his BFA and studying at the @thegroundlings and #ShelSilverstein was a big inspiration to me as a child. I would use the blank pages that are usually in the beginning and at the end of each book to draw my own illustrations in the book. I guess I have been using visualization and the law of attraction since I was a kid and didn’t even know it yet! ( Books in the drawing are: The Second City Unscripted By: Mike Thomas and Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein.)

Drawing 44/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. This is inspired by those intimate moments before bed when your partner is asleep and you stare at them sleeping so peacefully and think to yourself how thankful you are to have them in your life and stare at them smiling until you fall asleep too. ?? (I love you @joeyrudman ) #aboutlastnight . . side note- I have so much fun drawing everyday, one of the things I love about these drawings is that I get to design furniture and apparel and just everything. I used to be obsessed with the game The Sims and one of my favorite parts (besides playing “god”) was designing the house and the furniture. The only thing is that I had a limitation of furniture and items, now I draw my own world on a piece of paper everyday so the options are limitless and creating items that only exist in my mind and seeing them come to life really excites me. I enjoyed inventing the headboard in this piece. Happy Friday! ————————————————————— Esto está inspirado en esos momentos íntimos antes de acostarse cuando tu pareja está dormida y los miras durmiendo tan pacíficamente y piensas cuánto agradecido estás por tenerlos en tu vida y mirarlos sonriendo hasta que te duermas también. ———————————————— Link in bio for art prints and originals. ??
