Now the dog is a certified Instagram star!
Brazilian artist Rafael Mantesso has had a rough life. His wife left him – on his 30th birthday, no less. To make matters worse, she even took everything with her – from their furniture and appliances to their photos and kitchenware. There was nothing left for Rafael. Well, nothing except for Jimmy Choo, their pet bull terrier.
During this dark moment in his life, Rafael decided to do something productive to cheer himself up. He turned to his dog and to his love for art.
“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.”
Rafael later started sharing Jimmy’s photos on Instagram and it eventually went viral. Now he has hundreds of thousands of followers.
Check out Jimmy Choo’s awesome photos below:
Well, way to go making lemonade when life handed you lemons, Rafael! Best of luck to you and what you do.
