High Heat Studios
Art, Design and Custom Card Craftery
What we do
Everything comes back to graphic design. Web and print, identity and social media. Color theory, layout and typography, all essential design elements that I’ve trained in and worked with for years. I’ve created entire product campaigns, business cards, logos and identity packages and everything in between,
I’ve been creating websites for decades. I’ve created sites large and small, external sites, internal sites and corporate intranets. I’ve created sites for individuals, sites for companies, sites for government agencies. Designing for the web is a huge part of what I do each and every day.
The original purpose of this studio was specifically sports art, but it’s grown into something much more than that. I love the combination of art and sports, and if I had my wish, I would be creating it each and every day. Cards, posters, or promo materials, I just love sports related projects.

One of the most iconic baseball card sets to ever exist is 1956 Topps. This is a recreation using modern typography, modern players and photo effects to mimic the offset printing of the post-war era.

A local Interior Designer was in need of photography work for her existing website. With my background in photography I was able to shoot the interiors of various locations and create web galleries for their website. This is a small sampling of my commercial...
My latest creation combines my love of water colors, baseball, and retro inspired designs. The initial inspiration behind these were old tobacco cards. 1888 Duke "Perilous Occupations" (N86) featured the subject in front of a stylized background, with a large white...
Back in 1992, Marvel Comics contracted a company called Impact to make them a set of X-Men cards. As a kid, it was one of my favorites and I collected the entire set. I stumbled across them a little while back and while the colors were a little dated, the layout was...
