He showed the images at a surprise birthday he threw for her.

IRISH ILLUSTRATOR WILL Sliney proposed to his girlfriend by drawing Disney style cartoons about their relationship so far and into the future.

Sliney draws Spider Man for Marvel Comics and decided to use his skills to pop the question.

He asked his girlfriend Laura O’Callaghan to read the rhyming captions under the cartoons at the surprise birthday party he threw for her.

The images were projected on a large screen in the pub surrounded by family and friends.

The 32-year-old illustrator for Marvel Comics posted the cartoons on Facebook, saying:

There are so many people to thank for helping me set this up as this plan has been in the works for quite a while but right now I just want to thank Laura for saying Yes!
