Hey everybody! In celebration of all things saccharine and gag-worthy, Ten Paces and Draw is expressing our Valentine's Day love in our own kooky way with the theme UNLIKELY COUPLES. Let's start by this fine-feathered piece created in tandem by two Ten Paces newcomers! Sketch by Olivia Mew, final by Marissa Lanterman!
Marissa Lanterman was born and raised in the frozen tundra otherwise known as Rochester, NY. She's also a MICA alum, and, enchanted by the comparatively balmy weather in charm city, she still lives there. When not painting, Marissa has been known to bake elaborate cakes, watch old movies, apply lipstick without the aid of a hand mirror, and vainly attempt to train her cat to roll over.
