On Rafael Mantesso's 30th birthday, his wife left me. She took her cookware, furniture, photos, her decorations. She left him alone in an empty all-white apartment. The only thing she didn’t take was his bull terrier, whom she’d named after her favorite shoe designer: Jimmy Choo.
With only Jimmy for company, he found inspiration in his blank walls and his 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, he grabbed a marker and drew a new world around his ginger-eared pup. Suddenly, he felt his long-dormant inspiration for drawing, for art, for life—returning.
