Dylan Bonner is a Freelance Illustrator based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He started creating artwork when he was a child after being completely enamored with The Little Mermaid. That inspiration has sustained over the years and has carried into Dylan’s full-time job as an artist. Since 2017, he has worked on the Disney Princess property across several forms including comic books, toys, Consumer Products and Fine Art.


In his spare time, Dylan loves drawing his own original mermaids with a focus on fantasy, inclusion and a bit of sparkle. His hope is to bring those who see his artwork the same amount of joy and wonderment he felt as a kid when he would play with his favorite Ariel toy.
