25 Heartwarming Illustrations Show That Love Is In The Small Things

Philippa Rice is a multi-talented artist who creates simple but beautiful comics about the everyday joys of living with someone you love. The title of her comic book, Soppy, is unapologetically fitting!

Rice forgoes the usual stuff like hearts and roses, going instead for the everyday ways we share love with our significant others – be it our morning routines, a hug and a snuggle, or finishing the day in each others’ arms.


Sometimes, love can be found in the simplest things, like spending a blissful morning in the kitchen
