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 PressBackers.com, 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.

Tony Poulson was born and raises in the SL valley.  Doodling in class was probably one of the biggest factors in keeping his focus.  That translated to a lot of drawings throughout his younger years.  His first front page drawing for his school newspaper was printed in 7th grade and from there he was hooked on showcasing his work to the masses.  This later on led to a college career at the University of Utah Daily Utah Chronicle as the Cartoon Editor spreading his humor and opinion with his take on the political system and other school topics via his art.  Tony then made the national spotlight with some top awards from the Society of Professional Journalists and, while a complete honor, knew that editorial cartooning wasn’t for the long term.  He graduated with his BA in Interpersonal Communication in 2007.  After college he set off into the world of decorative painting where his work can be seen at the newly renovated Utah State capitol and the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.  He still resides in Salt Lake with his wife, the local lovely, and their 4 cats.  His mural work can be seen around the SL valley and he can be reached through his website: www.thetonus.com
