Wife Leaves Artist With Nothing But A Dog, So He Starts Putting Him In Funny Scenarios (New Pics)

Published 1 year ago

When Brazilian illustrator Rafael Mantesso’s wife left him with nothing but an empty house and a bull terrier named Jimmy Choo, he did not give up. Instead, he found inspiration in the empty walls and his dog and started creating a series of humorous illustrations.

Rafael says his wife took everything when leaving: her cookware, furniture, photos, her decorations. “The only thing she didn’t take was my bull terrier, whom she’d named after her favorite shoe designer: Jimmy Choo,” said the artist. “When Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to the white wall, I grabbed a marker and drew a new world around his ginger-eared pup. Suddenly, I felt his long-dormant inspiration for drawing, for art, for life—returning.”

Check out Rafael and Jimmy’s illustrations in the gallery below, and be sure to check out the ones we’ve featured before!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
