Beatrix G. de Velasco – Loteria Card drawing
“El Cantarito” (The little pitcher)
The Loteria is a Mexican card game, similar to bingo but with images instead numbers. The loteria cards got images inspirated by typical figures, objects, fruits and characters of the Mexican culture such as: the watermelon, death, the brave man, the lady, the hand, and many others.
Weeks ago I was invited to participate into a project which consists of redesigning (free style) each of the loteria cards. The main goal is to publish an illustrated book and with the money make a donation for a girl´s orphanage. All the artists invited and involve into this project are women.
