If you’ve ever wondered how love looks like on cartoons here you go. An artist drew his own life sharing little parts and details with us. Don’t be surprised if you find quite a few similarities. Their last picture is worth the wait!
What Curtis Wiklund wanted to show everyone how real love looks during boring weekdays. All those little gestures not only make you feel loved and appreciated but also make your days more special.
Some Place I’d Like to Be
Here is a little reminder now that Valentine’s Day is coming up soon. Of course is one of the loveliest days for couples but it’s important to love each other the same way any time throughout the years you are spending together.
Trip from IKEA
Relationships make an important part of our life. If we’re lucky enough we can find somebody who completely understands us and accepts us as we are. That’s what we are all looking for in our lives.
You don’t necessarily have to do something meaningful in order to enjoy each other’s company. You can be just lying on the couch watching something silly on the TV or staring out of your head, and still feel safe and comfortable.
Such a Wonderful Morning
Everyone knows the scenario when they feel the stupid smile is getting bigger and bigger on our face while watching our significant other. Meanwhile they just don’t understand what is happening and stare back like something is wrong with you.
Love comes in many different shapes and forms just because you see something else in other’s life and relationships does not mean yours is wrong. People are not the same we do, say and think things in a slightly different way.
While arguing with your loved one is probably the worst things. Unfortunately, it happens sometimes, even in a healthy relationship. The point is not to go over the line and say something you’d regret later, and learn how to forgive quickly.
During the time you spend and live together there are so many things you learn about each other. You know you’ve really fallen for them when everything they tell you makes you more and more interested.
What Should I Draw?
Helping feels necessary because you only want the best for your partner. You will learn a lot about your boundaries and what you are really capable of during your journey. Not everyone is able to give without anything in exchange.
We do it for its beauty and our happiness but relationships can be hard, too. Sometimes you got to fight for it, or suffer through something together. These times show the best how committed you are.
Falling asleep becomes so easy when you feel safe and sound. There is nothing in this world like seeing your lover after a long and tiring day. They motivate you and make you keep moving forward.
Time to Go to Bed
See, little things like this can be so meaningful. The most gets done when the other doesn’t see it and that’s better this way. When you have the right person they will give back to you what you deserve.
It’s hard to appreciate something while you have it. We usually realize the importance of it only after losing it. That’s how life is, unfortunately.
Seriously, kisses never get old. They can mean so much: love, peace, happiness, affection, appreciation, forgiving.
You know, once get a taste of sleeping in the same bed with someone you love and feel their warmth, sleeping alone really sucks. Not to mention that the first thing you see and talk to in the morning is them.
This illustration speaks for itself. Pregnancy is the most wonderful thing that could happen to a couple. A third person is joining your journey full of excitement and happiness
How about a quick jump to the present? From finding out that you’re pregnant to having two kids there is a really long way to go. No doubt, you will learn more things that you’ve ever did during that period.
And there’s a third baby on the way! Just right in time for a holiday trip to Florida. Who wouldn’t love a great family vacation leaving everything behind for a couple days or weeks and enjoy yourselves.
Spending quality time with your children and wife cannot be compared to anything else. They say that the most valuable things in life are not being sold for a reason. Time to start digging and building yours!
Father and Son Moments
Your kids are growing so fast! You have to use every little moment you have with them because one day you’ll realize they have their own family, job and won’t have as much free time to spend it with you.
When it comes to a problematic situation, who is the first you can ask for help? Even if it is just the need of comfort and emotional stability, our family is always there to make us feel better no matter what happened.
Late Night Snacks
When your wife is pregnant, you might notice that you slowly start to act like you are pregnant, too. Craving and eating all the snacks together, staying up and sleeping late. The problem is, you won’t have a good excuse for getting fat!
Christmas Is Coming
Holidays are the best when you have a family to share it with. Being home alone on Christmas Eve is not as fun as it seems in the movie with the 8-year-old Kevin McCallister. The message is clear, spend it with your family and relatives.
Attention From You
Explaining the caption, attention is not always a good sign and not everyone likes it. However, when it comes from the right person, you suddenly become greedy and want all of it. Don’t let attention out of your definition of love!
You can see how much the artist loves his life by the amount of pictures he creates. Curtis actually has a whole book entitled to his loved ones. What a great gift idea by the way.
Since we are all human beings, we need some privacy from time to time. But there is a point when they become part of it and you kind of love it when they are all over you. It’s just another sign of how loved you really are.
Have you ever been able to enjoy somebody’s company without talking? Once you surround yourself with those who you love, you don’t have to worry about making small talk and try to fill the silence with unnecessary words.
The best things about kids is probably that you can relive your own childhood with them. Being a child for the second time is great; you play and learn a lot, and always having fun in a bigger company.
Honestly, there is so much more behind the scenes. People try to influence your decisions and give you advice while they are not the ones participating in your relationship. You keep things hidden, simply because it is only your business, nobody has the right to say anything.
If an illustration could show what love is, this would be the exact picture. It’s not a photograph nor a professional painting, yet it gives you the right impressions about it. The biggest gift you could ever have is your family.
