Contributor Limelight: Brighton Ballard

Brighton Ballard – Illustrator

Brighton Ballard became a SLUG illustrator in December 2014 and has charmed us with her work ever since! Ballard enjoys all the types of assignments and collaborating with other creative minds at the magazine. She considers her favorite assignments her August 2016 “Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day” comic and Localized posters that she’s created. As she cherishes coffee in her daily life, however, this month’s cover may earn a spot at the top for her as well (see right). In addition to her artistry and local-punk/hardcore hertiage, Ballard also finds happiness in film as a member of Nighttimer Productions, a mostly female filmmaking group. You can find her portfolio at, new work on Instagram @brightonballard and creative studio services with husband Derek Ballard at
