Illustration Friday: linked




I have made a lot of houses that are connected or linked but most of them I have already shown. Linked is a wonderful word and I can think of so many things I would love to make for this prompt. While the paintings dry, I made 2 houses that are linked. They are made of paper and paint. My submission for Illustration Friday's "linked" theme is "duplex" :D




Hope you are having a lovely weekend and please check out the brochure printing giveaway here, it is free :)
