His work has been seen in everything from children’s books to international publications and magazines.

In 2000 Dallyn discovered his love of teaching after being asked to take over an intro to drawing class at Salt Lake Community College. Since then, he has been teaching drawing, painting, and even graphic design for several different colleges and universities. Currently Mr. Zundel is the graphic arts teacher at Wasatch High School in Heber City, Utah. He is also an adjunct professor for Utah Valley University and for BYU-Idaho. Dallyn grew up on a potato farm in South Eastern Idaho where he worked with his father training racing quarter horses. His love of horses and racing has never left him. He always said that if he wasn’t an artist he would be racing horses. It was his only other interest in life. Luckily for him, his father still has a few that he races every summer.
