Artist (and musician) Chepo Peña of Austin, TX has combined two of my favorite things in a way that is nothing short of genius. Loteria (the traditional Mexican Bingo game with the illustrated cards) and the classic George Lucas Star Wars movie. And voila! You’ve got Space Loteria. Besides being humorous, they are truly clever, with some great visual puns (e.g. Yoda as shrimp, Darth as melonhead).
Below are some of my favorites, next to the original Mexican Loteria cards that inspired Chepo’s creations.
He is also an accomplished bassist:

The cards are also featured (a whole page) in the Abrahams book Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles Memorabilia and Stories from a Galaxy Far, Far Away by Stephen J. Sansweet and Anne Neumann.
