Heavy J Studios raises $10K for non-profits

Those are words I never expected to type in 2020, so thank you to the entire Heavy J Studios Collectors Club and hype squad (Jeremy Ross, Ryan Fagan, Blake Jamieson, efdot, Tony Bianchini, Matt Castello, …) for making this a reality. Special thanks as well to John and Kenneth, who donated special bonus cards to […]

Legends of Dodgertown

One of my favorite artists is Brooklyn-based muralist efdot, who became well known to many card collectors as one of the most popular Topps Project 2020 artists. As an added bonus for collectors, just as Project 2020 was winding down and efdot withdrawal was imminent, word came that Topps and efdot were partnering on a […]

Thanks to John and (other) Jason for featuring several card artists on their recent episode of Ballcaps and Bagpipes. A recording is here.

The latest addition to our list is the Buck Leonard Association for Sports and Human Enrichment. Based in North Carolina, here […]

The party is on!

I was watching Blake paint on his livestream last night, and the idea was raised that it would be fun to do some sort of art and beverage party for the livestream comments crew know as the #StreamTeam! Well, first off, why only one? 😀 So let’s not call this THE party, but simply the […]

Great news! Thanks to friend and HJS supporter John aka phitter72 I am able to offer 1949 Leaf style cards of the Cobra with any order benefitting the Dave Parker Foundation. There is a Pirates version. And a Reds version. Take advantage while supplies last!

Exciting news! HJS supporter @RhodesRomance has donated a limited number of individually hand-painted and numbered Kirk Gibson top loaders to help supersize donations to the Kirk Gibson Foundation. There is a Tigers version. And a Dodgers version. Add $20 to your Gibby Foundation donations and I’ll add one of these amazing pieces while supplies last. […]

Heavy J Studios cards hit the big time!

If you don’t know about CardArt.com, the new site created by Blake Jamieson to sell his own work direct to collectors, you should definitely take a look! I am proud to have a number of CardArt pieces in my own collection. But I’m even prouder to be one of Blake’s featured guest artists this month. […]
