Men, take note: This guy has completely upped the ante on Valentine’s Day.
Brian Flynn wanted to do something extra-special for his girlfriend Manini, so he decided to go the nostalgic/feelings route. He reached out to illustrator Dylan Bonner on Tumblr to see if it was possible to sprinkle some Disney animation magic on their love story.
In celebration of the movies that he and his girlfriend both adore, Brian asked Dylan to swap out some of the most beloved couples from Disney movies with drawings that looked exactly like him and Manini. “I want our relationship to be as epic and timeless as the animations we grew up on,” Brian said in a post on Imgur. D’awwwwww.
Brian sent over some pictures so Dylan could get their faces just right, and we have to say — Dylan did a seriously badass job capturing the spirit of Disney animation while personalizing it to this real-life fairytale romance. This present has been a surprise three months in the making, and Brian is practically bursting with excitement to share his gift. “I can’t wait to show her!” he wrote on Imgur.
Below are just a few of our favorite illustrations of this adorable couple. They are guaranteed to get you in the Valentine’s Day spirit. Oh and Dylan, you can totally draw the Disney versions of us anytime.
