Italian for My Girlfriend

A sketchbook of illustrated Italian words and idioms to help teach my native language to my girlfriend (now wife), who is from the United States.

Scans of this project are on the Italian for my Girlfriend blog.

During the project's run from 2012 to 2017, more than a thousand illustrations have been drawn. Italian For My Girlfriend received a considerable amount of attention, with the blog gathering more than 20000 followers.

100 selected illustrations from this project have been made into a book, Italian For My Girlfriend - Anthology. The book was published in 2017 as a paperback book, which can be found in my Storenvy store, on Lulu, and on Amazon, with a digital version available in in my store.
