Holly Golightly and husband Jim Balent.

Holly Golightly entered the comics industry in the 1990s and names artist Frank Thorne as her "hero" for his work on Red Sonja.[3] Golightly's list of work ranges from Nightmare Theatre[4] for Chaos! Comics to Sabrina[5] for Archie Comics to her creator-owned work such as Vampfire and School Bites.[6]

She is the colorist for husband Jim Balent's Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose[7] as well as the model for Tarot herself.[8] She has frequently been shown on the photo covers dressed as Tarot and as Catress from the 3 Little Kittens comics and is the model for the official Tarot photo calendar.

She has expanded into pin-ups/modeling with Balent doing the photography and has her own pin-up calendar. She designed and maintains both of their official websites, and designs many of the T-shirts and apparel that the site offers.

Golightly also contributes art for various businesses and people including NewWitch magazine[2] and Thomas Dolby.[5]

Golightly and Balent operate the BroadSword Comics comics publishing company, known for its Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose comic book. Under this company, Golightly has published Fears and Ears: A Travel Guide to Orlando as well as numerous art books of her own work. Golightly frequently draws one-page stories featuring her cat, Pangur Ban. A collection of these stories was published through Kickstarter in 2015.[9]

No one really inspired me to pursue comics- I just knew that’s where my happiness lay. BUT Frank Thorne was always my hero from the first time I saw his Red Sonja comic back in the 70s. So I don’t have a mentor but Frank is my Wizard!
