He was commissioned to produce four pieces of art, each celebrating an iconic Italian destination: Portofino in springtime, summer on the Amalfi Coast, autumn in Rome and winter in Cortina d’Ampezzo.

Portofino and the Amalfi Coast
I also supplied copy for a series of postcards featuring the illustrations, and further promotional material for the 2011 collections in print and online.
