These images have been floating around the interwebs for a year or two and it’s hard to figure out who created them. We grabbed these versions of the loteria cards based on Selena, the Queen of Tex-Mex Musica, from BuzzFeed.
When Chuy wins some money in the California SCRATCHER lottery, he consults with compa Smiley to discuss the most cost-effective use of the winning funds. Can sage advice from Dr. Sigmund Freud (making his first appearance in a Hey Vato! epsiode) clarify Chuy’s thinking?

We all know it’s hard to make money, and even hard to hold on to it. That’s why idiots like us need to who’s really picking our pockets and how they do it.

While waiting for his plane to leave the Dominican Republic and immigrate to America, Augusto Ramirez recalls the three biggest regrets of his life.
(PNS reporting from NEW YERSEY) Pedro Quezada, the Garden State bodega owner who won Saturday’s $338 million Powerball jackpot, says his old life of selling Flamin’Hot Cheetos and malt liquor is all behind him now and he now plans a future helping those in need.
The Dominican immigrant, who purchased the lottery ticket at Eagle Liquor in Passaic, didn’t know the store had sold the lucky ducat or that he was the big winner when he went to check, he told PNS in an interview Thursday.
“When they looked, the clerk at the counter told me congratulations,” Quezada said. “Then he said we were cousins, even though he is a Hindu gentleman.”
POCHO amiga Donna Atwood is a graphic artist in Phoenix with a love of the Southwest. She writes she was
born in San Antonio, TX to predominantly German parents. Maternal grandfather unknown. So, I believe we have “esqueleto en el armario” in my family. I am definitely inspired by Mexican art, especially after studying Mexican art history in college. And this is Phoenix, with a healthy Hispanic population. So, I am immersed in it.
Her most recent project is a set of woodcuts (technically they are “linocuts”) inspired by Mexican loteria cards.
Peep the loteria images below (plus two extras), and if you like, visit her store on Etsy where they are available as signed, numbered, limited-edition prints.
