Once upon a time there was a girl named Blythe and a boy named Josh. Having met in the most amusing of watercolor classes, Blythe and Josh became close friends. They bonded over an appreciation of aerobic fitness and attractive men. In their art, they shared a love of the whimsical and the fantastical. And of character design. They brought out the best in each other and as a result, created this blog. Glitter and Graphite was created as an outlet for Blythe and Josh to challenge and expand their character design skills. Each week, Blythe and Josh will each create (or choose) a character to be designed (or redesigned).
