The illustrated dog portraits of Rafael Mantesso, a Brazilian restaurateur and editor-in-chief of a gastronomy marketing site, follows his pet bull terrier as he embarks on imaginative adventures thanks to a white board and black marker. Sometimes that's all that's needed when it comes to doing something new and challenging the norm. After all, through these illustrated dog portraits, Jimmy Choo, who was named by the artist's ex-wife, gets to channel his inner superman, have an affair with Lady and even become part of an iconic classical painting.

Since Jimmy Choo is always with Mantesso as he works, he felt that it was only natural he become part of his work. Thus these illustrated dog portraits were born. He posts a new one every day on Instagram.
