Rafael Mantesso, the Editor-in-Chief of Marketing na Cozinha, a Brazilian gastronomy site and artist in his own right, has created a number of wonderfully playful illustrations that center around his very energetic but very cooperative Bull Terrier named Jimmy Choo. According an interview with A+, Rafael’s beloved dog gave him daily inspiration.
Mantesso told A+ that after divorce he was left in an empty house. Wanting to fill in the empty spaces, he started drawing and painting again.Jimmy Choo was always there to watch Mantesso work, so it was natural thing for him to snap images of Jimmy interacting with his art. Mantesso says Jimmy Choo is very energetic but he willingly helps his owner to realize his ideas.
