He Was Left With Nothing But His Dog, So Here Is What He Did…

When Rafael Mantesso’s wife left him on his 30th birthday she took everything with her, including the cookware, the furniture and furnishings, all their photos, and left him with only one thing…a bull terrier named Jimmy Choo.

“With only Jimmy for company, I found inspiration in my blank walls and my best friend and started snapping photos of Jimmy Choo as he trotted and cavorted around the house in glee. When Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to the white wall, I grabbed a marker and drew a new world around my ginger-eared pup. Suddenly, I felt this long-dormant inspiration for drawing — for art, for life — returning,” recounts Rafael.

Eventually, he made a whole series of photographs depicting various funny scenes with Jimmy. Now Rafael and Jimmy Choo, his best friend have over 200,000 followers on Instagram.  This coming October a book is set to come out featuring the best photos of Jimmy.
