In an article for Bored Panda in 2015, the artist explained, “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 the pup finally lay down, Mantesso found a marker and began to scribble an imaginary world on the white wall behind him. And he didn’t stop there. Montesso’s Instagram page is now full of photos of Jimmy in an array of comic situations, all of which are sure to bring a smile to your face.
Sitting for a mug shot, singing into a microphone and even riding a bicycle are just a few of Jimmy’s photographed pastimes. And some of the fun illustrations even allude to the products of the very fashion brand Jimmy was named after.
