Anna Randal for Art-Sheep
After his wife left him in an almost empty apartment, Rafael Mantesso found comfort in the company of his bull terrier. Jimmy Choo was named after his wife’s favorite shoe designer and Rafael came closer with Jimmy and started taking random photographs of his best friend.
One day Jimmy layers down in front of a white wall. Rafael grabbed his marker and drew a new world around Jimmy. That was it! Rafael found purpose in art and his will to live returned.
Following his first instinct, Rafael continued to create amazing portraits of Jimmy. He created eye-catching, humorous illustrations that find little Jimmy doing all kinds of crazy things. From dreaming of shoes to turning into a DJ, Rafael’s canine friend looks like he had some amazing visual moments with a little help of his boss.
