This man turned his heartache into inspiration after his wife left him taking everything with her but the dog

It's a sad, sad day when a good thing comes to an end but where one ends, another begins. Just like Rafael Mantesso found out. He had a day to forget on his 30th birthday when his wife left him, to make matters worse, she took everything with her: the furniture, the kitchenware, all the photos and the pictures.

She left one thing behind however, the couple's bull terrier named Jimmy Choo after the famous shoe designer. With his wife gone, Rafael turned his hand to a long dormant inspiration; art. Using Jimmy Choo as his partner, Rafael began making beautiful illustrations with the bare walls as canvas. As Rafael began to photo his creations, people began to sit up and take notice.

Not only were the world's media enchanted, but Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo's Creative Director fell under the other Jimmy's spell.

Sandra approached Rafael to commission him to create a series illustrations to decorate a selection of Jimmy Choo accessories. For Rafael, one door closed and another opened.
