Pampling’s Sparrow on Cherry

Sparrow on Cherry by AlbertoCubatas feels refreshing, focusing on the beauty of nature and purity of one color illustration techniques with no attempts to bring in even a hint of pop culture. And it doesn’t need it, because the playfully mussed crest of the bird’s feathers and the gentle blooming of flowers is more than enough to hold any viewer’s interest. Delicate short, white lines reveal texture for the bird’s feathers, while a thick outline seats him firmly in the art’s foreground. In contrast to the bird’s lined look, the flowers are a solid-colored spectacle, capturing many stages of blooming as they fill in a background and environment for the bird. It’s especially nice how some petals layer to create more interest, and while some flowers are repeated in the art, it’s so well-done that most viewers will never notice. The vertical captions are a cool touch, framing the art and adding a bit of traditional flair.
