S. Preston is an artist who uses the less-is-more approach to take a look at the nation’s pastime, and his latest series focuses on the mascots that keep fans entertained around the league.

The series features the felt-covered fan favorites from The Cubs, Phillies, Mets, Blue Jays and more, showing the mascots just peeking into frame against a gradient background.
