Jimmy The Bull Dog Photo Art

When Rafael Mantesso’s wife left him, she took the cookware, photos, furniture, decorations. He was left all alone in an empty white apartment, with his best friend, Jimmy Choo the bull terrier.

With only Jimmy for company, Rafael managed to find inspiration in the blank walls that surrounded his friend. And he started snapping. Photos. Of Jimmy Choo. As he pranced around the house in glee.

When Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to a white wall, Rafael’s inspiration reached new heights, as he grabbed a marker and drew a whole new world around the pup. He felt his long-dormant inspiration for art and life start to return at last…

Jimmy Choo was named by Rafael’s wife, who loved the footwear.

You can also pick up Jimmy’s latest book – “A Dog Named Jimmy“.

Seeing all this, maybe I should adopt a dog named Jimmy too. To rekindle the fire of art and inspiration deep inside me once again…
