When his wife left him on his 30th birthday, she took EVERYTHING. Everything except their bull terrier, 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," says Rafael Mantesso.
