These Brutally Honest Illustrations Reveal The Unspoken Side Of Relationships

These Brutally Honest Illustrations Reveal The Unspoken Side Of Relationships

These illustrations have truth drawn all over then! They are all done by a Los Angeles artist named Amanda Oleander who has a way of capturing life’s true love moments in such a way that we either cringe or we simply nod our heads in agreement. She gets her inspiration from her own relationship which is probably why she’s able to be so honest in her art and those who have been in a relationship for a long time will certainly agree with all of these artists renditions of what really goes on behind the scenes of true love.  She tells us that he “ends up drawn in most of my drawings.’ She also says “We have been together for almost 3 years. He’s the sweetest man I’ve ever met. 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.” Well, she is definitely in love and she expresses that love in her illustrations.

She also likes to reveal the intimate details of relationships through her illustrations, saying, “I’m enthralled by the way people behave behind closed doors, intimate moments we never get to see. Those are moments that can’t really be documented because if they were, it would alter the way the person behaved. So I draw them.”

Each drawing that she does is inspired by a different concept. Perhaps she’s hoping to capture it for all time kind of like a photo but in a much more personal way with her drawings. She also has this to say about it,  “I do wish that viewers take with them a sense of confidence and appreciation for the simple moments in life.”

With that said, let’s take a look at these intimate details that she reveals in these all-too-truthful illustrations that she does:

Cuddling with hair on his face:

Well, one person here is having a good cuddle but the other person is doing nothing but eating hair! Most women don’t understand how obtrusive their hair can be, especially in an intimate situation such as this when your man is trying to get close but he has to go through an entire forest of hair to attempt this. There must be something that can be done about this. How about a scrunchie to tie it all up? The problem with that is most women love to sleep with all of their hair down because it’s really the only time when it’s not bothering us but obviously, it can be bothersome to the person next to us!

The hairiest woman in the world!

It’s true, after a certain amount of time with a man, the woman tends to let this aspect of herself go just a bit. It’s not that she prefers having hairy legs, it’s just such a chore to keep up on all of it all the time! Of course, at the beginning of any relationship, we are trying to keep this hair down to a minimum but the upkeep is so tedious that in time, we are reluctant to do this on a daily basis. Especially in the winter when we don’t ever have to show off our legs in public. The only person who knows how hairy we can really be is our men who have to deal with it.
