Charly Palmer

The Legend of Gravity

Charly Palmer, who earned his BFA from the American Academy of Art in Chicago, is an award-winning fine artist, illustrator, and graphic designer who has illustrated seven acclaimed children’s books. Palmer was selected by TIME magazine to design its July 2020 cover, as part of the America Must Change issue. 

In his author-illustrator debut, The Legend of Gravity: A Tall Basketball Tale, Palmer spins a tall tale about a neighborhood streetball hero. Gravity is the new kid on the Hillside Projects basketball team, the Eagles. He once jumped so high that his teammates went out for ice cream before he came back down. With Gravity on their side, the Eagles feel unstoppable. But when they face-off with the Flyers, the winningest team in the whole city, they realize that it may take a little more than Gravity to bring them to victory.
