Dog Owner Creates Fun Illustrations With His Bull Terrier

“Although it’s really messy when I’m photographing him, he obeys me,” Mantesso.

“I had just divorced my ex wife, who took all the furniture in the house and the house was completely empty and white. The only thing I had was Jimmy and an empty white house.”

“I had a pitbull when he was younger and he died early. Then, I always dreamed of having a bull terrier.”

“I think they are an amazing breed – behavior, personality, the love they demonstrate to their owner, and especially their aesthetics.”

“He is definitely my best friend and companion. I hate it when people turn away or cross the street for fear of him – people think bull terriers and pit bull dogs are murderers and bloodthirsty.”

“I love to paint and draw, but recently I went back to do that. For now it is a hobby, draw, illustrate and paint using objects in my daily life. I already have some requests for screens, photos and am starting to think about making it work. We will see.”
