Whimsical Pet Portraits by a Disgruntled Ex-Husband.

When Rafael Mantesso’s wife walked out on their marriage, taking everything from their cookware to their furniture, she was nice enough to leave him the dog. With man’s best friend by his side, Mantesso’s decided to make the best of the situation, and create some humor by posing his dog in adorable, albeit occasionally ridiculous, photos.

Together, Mantesso, with the help of his best friend, captured shots of his bull terrier, who his wife named Jimmy Choo after the famous footwear designer. Mantesso embellished  these shots with marker add-ons drawn onto the walls and floors of his stark white, completely empty apartment. The resulting series, a selection of which is showcased below, shows just how much better a pet can make a person feel in a difficult situation, and also showcases an amazing use of creative energy to overcome a heartbreak.
