Jimmy the Bull Expands Enesco License
Adorable Internet Sensation from Artist Raphael Montesso
To Expand Collection from Enesco Ltd to US
New York, NY, August 9, 2018: The beloved internet sensation bull terrier “Jimmy the Bull” is proud to announce that they have expanded their license with leading giftware company Enesco Ltd., to include new US collections of gift products. Created by artist Raphael Mantesso, Jimmy the Bull licensing includes hundreds of charming and humorous images that combine photography and free hand illustrations.
Now, under the expanded license, Enesco will be offering gift products including figurines, picture frames, wall art, tote-bags, umbrellas, make up bags, dog bowls, and other products to major retailers throughout North America and Europe.
Appropriately named after the footwear designer, Jimmy Choo, with whom the duo later collaborated with for a line of bags and women’s accessories, Jimmy the Bull photographs are created by placing the beloved pet within hand drawn illustration – from sunglasses, to the newspaper, to even a cape and a city skyline creating a flying superhero. Since its first release in 2015, the whimsical drawings of Jimmy the Bull have captured the world’s attention. The images were broadcast across global media and Jimmy the Bull’s Instagram feed became an immediate international sensation followed by his first book entitled “A Dog Named Jimmy” featuring a collection of the tongue-in-cheek imagery. As heartwarming as he is hilarious, Jimmy the Bull continues to delight animal lovers everywhere.
The license with Enesco was created by The Brand Liaison and Art Ask Agency, the agents for Jimmy the Bull licensing, in US and Europe respectively. Expanding upon the success of Jimmy the Bull’s book of art and imagery, Jimmy the Bull licensing includes giftables, calendars, stationery, ceramics, hydration, and much more.
