New York resident Brian Flynn wanted to do something special for his girlfriend Manini Gupta this Valentine's Day. Being that they are both Disney fans, he "drew up" the perfect solution.


He chose artist and friend Dylan Bonner to take on the project.

"Dylan is the son of one of my mom's best friends. I've known him since he was a little kid, and I've always thought he was incredibly talented," Flynn told BuzzFeed News.

And Flynn said he had a hard time containing his excitement for the project.

"Every time Dylan sent me an update, I was bursting at the seams trying to keep it a secret," he said.

Flynn said each illustration had a specific inspiration.

"Manini loves The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, so those were a given," he said. "Everyone thinks she looks like Jasmine, so Aladdin was kind of a given as well. I chose Mulan because Mani totally embodies her determined energy. And, finally, I chose Tangled because I share a name with Flynn, and I'm a master of his token look, 'smolder.'"

Needless to say, Manini loved them.

"At first I was in disbelief — like, 'Is that my face in a Disney drawing?' — but then I was just amazed by the artistry and what a thoughtful and deeply personal gift Brian and Dylan created," Manini said. "I can't believe Brian kept this secret for three months. When it comes to surprises, he's normally the worst secret keeper."
