We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Blake Palmer was born and raised in los angeles, california. he graduated from fullerton college with a degree in graphic design and illustration. he has overcome many obstacles in life including dyslexia. blake works as a full-time graphic designer and currently resides in northern utah where he enjoys all that utah has to offer. blake is a man of many talents: painter, awesome mustache wearer, illustrator, photographer, bmx super star, restorer of vintage cars, metal sculptor, craftsman, and clothing designer. blake likes to use different mediums. he works with acrylic paints, vintage wallpaper, wax, fabric, metal, xerox transfers, charcoal, pencil, chalk and whatever he can get his hands onto. I like using a layering process in my art. My work has a graphic design feel to it. I try to use elements I have learned from working in a print shop: building with layers, transparencies, etc. My main subject matter is women because they are strong to me. Most of my images of women are a see-through silhouette. I use a lot of different techniques in my art and it is a long process of reacting to what I am creating in the moment. contact_ telephone_ 801 510 0815 mailbox_ web_
